CIME Haut-Richelieu, mont Saint-Grégoire

Rising above the flat agricultural land that surrounds the Richelieu River, is mont Saint-Grégoire, one of the monteregian hills that are characteristic of the region’s landscape.

Nowadays, mont Saint-Grégoire is recognized for the richness of its natural environment and its magnificent panorama.
