A view from the Rocky summit in winter The Rocky summit
Rocky peak, with its smooth stone streaked by ancient glaciers, has an altitude of 400 metres and offers a splendid view to the north. From that high perch, a panoramic patchwork of agricultural lands lies at your feet. Far away, those who know what to look for can trace forest corridors stretching off to the Saint Lawrence, maintaining a vital link between the mountain and the nearby woodlands. These greenspaces are critical thoroughfares for deer, fox, birds and even plants. In the springtime, the summit sports a colourful cap of flowering shrubs, cherry trees and serviceberry bushes.
