Smith’s Fisheries

A beautiful walk along the shoreline to the east of Smith’s Fisheries brings you to the mouth of the Montreal River, where you may either continue E along the shore to Fish Cove, or you may turn N and follow the jagged course of the Montreal River up to younger layers within the Portage Lake Lavas. You will eventually reach the Upper Falls, a beautiful place where there are Portage Lake pyroclastic flow deposits.

West Pond Rhyolites

Above the Upper Falls are two small volcanic domes with pyroclastic flow deposits mantling their flanks. Exposures may be difficult to reach.
