Hike Lookout Trail, Algonquin Provincial Park

Rate this Adventure Lookout Trail, Algonquin

A short hike well worth the view in Algonquin Provincial Park. 

Just off Hwy 60, the Lookout Trail parking lot is clearly marked. The trail is a fairly simple trip with a constant up-hill trail. Along the way there are many large bolders that will capture your attention. At the top of the cliff there is a wide viewing area clear of trees and brush to  allow you to appreicate the scenic surondings. 

To avoid groups of people, set out early and enjoy breakfast with a view!
