Third Stop - Lake On the Mountain - Explore & Dinner
If you’ve never been to Lake on the Mountain, it is a must for summer 2023. This freshwater lake is one of the natural wonders in Ontario with a mystery of how it was formed and how the water continues to flow.
“Geologists today believe the lake is the result of a collapsed doline or sinkhole, a phenomenon common in areas where limestone is prevalent. Believed to be fed by two small streams, the most credible measurement pegs the lake at 37 metres deep” (The Brel Team)
Must Do and See in Lake on the Mountain:
- Stand on the main road and take in the view: on one side, you’ll see the Bay of Quinte; on the other, the Lake on the Mountain, 60 metres above the Bay
- Ride horses on the trails at Diamond J Ranch
