It's this time of the year when you are heading out to the sugar bush... For many visitors to Canada, it is something uniquely Canadian. For those of us fortunate enough to live here, it's still special.
Sucrerie de la Montagne is about a 90-minute drive from Ottawa.
Take the 417 east and, shortly after crossing into Quebec, take Exit 9 to Rigaud. Turn right on to Rte 342, then right on to Rte 325. Shortly after Mont-Rigaud ski hill, turn left on to rang St-Georges. The Sucrerie is nearly five kilometres down this road, well-marked on the left.
