Come visit this five-square-kilometre area and discover the spectacular landscape once explored by Alfred Kelly, a renowned ornithologist who donated the first protected site in the area 25 years ago. This site features a wide variety of habitats, from steep rock walls to streams, ponds and forests. More than 80 per cent of Quebec’s birds of prey species have been identified on this site. While walking along the 15-kilometre trail, you may even spot the peregrine falcon that is nesting on the cliffs!
