A view from the Dieppe summit The Dieppe summit
Offering a breathtaking view of the Richelieu River flowing northwards, the Dieppe summit is popular with visitors for its expansive rocky peak, perfect for taking a break and admiring the view. Bird lovers may spy a few interesting species flying or hunting near the cliff. The turkey vulture, a member of the condor family, feeds mainly on dead animals and has a wing span of nearly two metres. It can be recognized by its bare red head. It can often be seen gliding nonchalantly over the summit, alone or in groups. Lucky visitors may even spot a peregrine falcon, an at-risk species that nests on the Dieppe cliffs.
