A Westport Favourite

A favourite hiking spot among residents is the Foley Mountain Conservation Area. The area consists of several hiking loops that offer breathtaking views of the Upper Rideau Lake and Westport. From the top of Spy Rock, visitors get an unobstructed view of the entire village. Visit in the spring or summer to see lush green forests or vibrant reds, yellows, and oranges of the changing leaves during autumn. Winters in Westport are stunning as well, providing visitors with dreamlike snow-covered views of the village and surrounding forests.
