This place made me wish I had an ultra-wide angle lens for my camera. Just so I could capture the awesomeness of seeing Lake Ontario 100 ft below me, and this giant like right beside me all in one view. Definitely a MUST visit if you're in PEC.

This is a Canadian oddity, and unlike Magnetic Hill in New Brunswick, it's a genuine mystery. How does a lake get on top of a hill? Not much to do but read the explanatory sign and keep turning around to look at Lake Ontario far below on the other side of the road, but it's worth a stop.

A most unusual geological formation of an elevated water storage. Even today scientists cannot fully explain how this water enters the high lake.

We walked the street and viewed the lake and it was interesting to see very scenic. We were only able to see part of the lake.

Because there is water around everywhere in The County, you have to read the plaque that describes the Lake on the Mountain to appreciate it. So, it is a nice stop but other than appreciating the phenomenon, and perhaps visiting one of the two restaurants nearby, it isn't set up in a way where you can stay long to enjoy it. Just a short stretch of shoreline to look out on the lake.
