Foley Mountain Conservation Area

Owned and operated by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, Foley Mountain Conservation Area consists of 800 acres of mixed forests, ponds, and fields. It is nestled on the top of the “mountain” overlooking the village of Westport and offers a variety of outdoor opportunities, including seven marked trails:

Popular Trails

Spy Rock (Blue Circle Trail)

The Blue Circle Trail leads to the Spy Rock lookout, high above Westport. This view was created when a meteor slammed into the planet a few kilometers to the southwest. The impact caused a massive earthquake causing the earth of Foley Mountain to fall away 100 meters creating the abrupt, high cliff with it's spectacular panoramic view. The path to the lookout is accessible via an easy access ramp.

Length: 3.2 km

Mobility Trail, at 0.3 km, enables everyone to enjoy the conversation area. It is wheel-chair friendly, with a wide crushed-stone path and low grades.

Rideau Trail runs for 8 km along the edge of the conservation area.
