About Alfred-Kelly Nature Reserve (Prévost)

Located just 60 km from Montreal, this rocky 605 hectare (1,496 ac.) reserve is nestled in the heart of the Piedmont and Prévost Escarpments of the Laurentians — one of the region’s emblematic natural areas. Balancing conservation and public access, this area offers stunning trail systems up to 15 km long and provides habitat for more than 80% of Quebec’s birds of prey! Other flora and fauna spotted on the property include the rare purple clematis and Holboell’s rockcress, Canada warbler and the endangered butternut tree.
