Lanark County is a land of sweet contrasts, where dense forests of sugar maple border lush, green fields and you’re as likely to come across a cyclist as a farmer on one of the region’s winding roads. Urban and rural unite here to create a region that’s as colourful and varied as the patchwork quilt of the land itself.
Recreation is king, and paddling, hiking, cycling, and lazy days on the river or lake all seep into your soul, while above it all, the faint but lingering scent of maple makes its way into every corner and crevice of the landscape.
