  • This trail is a must do as it's right on the Algonquin 60 highway. It only takes about an hour and the hike is moderate. Once you get to the highest point the view is almost endless. Watch your step t...  more »
  • Well signposted where to stop and safe, large car park. This hike is just 2 km far but yet an hour round trip. It's a nice path (to climb) with a beautiful view in the middle. Care for insect repellent!

  • Lookout Trail is a very simple hike accessible from the main road in Algonquin Provincial Park. It takes about 20-30 minutes to walk to the lookout and the trail is fairly easy albeit not flat or fully accessible. Once you get to the lookout you'll easily spend 20 or 30 minutes just enjoying the view and sitting and relaxing. If you are visiting Algonquin Park, this is a must see.
  • This hike can be a little challenging for the young and old because parts of it are very steep. But your efforts will be rewarded with an amazing view at the top.
  • A breathtaking view and lovely short hike towards the top. This trail is very easy to reach and very easy to traverse. You can bring your kids and elderly fold here. It is not wheelchair accessible per se as the trails are a bit rocky but if you are able to walk just fine then you can reach the time with ease. The main reason I love this spot is for the Fall and Spring seasons. The sprouting of leaves in the Spring and the explosive color changes in the Fall amaze me every time. This is also a great spot to launch a drone for some great aerial footage. I implore EVERYONE to come to the Lookout trail for a great view!
  • What an awesome spot! It's an easy hike to get up to one of the best views of the park. There's a couple of benches, and a few fairly flat open little areas if you want to sit and have a picnic. Plus there's the boulder near the beginning of the trail that everyone loves to climb. :)
  • Short hike, really nice lookout!
