Lions lookout can be a bit tricky to find. Make sure you follow signs on the road (hand written and small) as google maps could not find the destination for us. It is located on the end of a uphill gravel road. View of the...More

A stunning 360-degree view. Best time to visit is during fall. Take your car and drive in the surrounding areas - the calmness of the nature is really enjoyable here.

Don't be intimidated by the drive up to the top. Accessed behind the Summit Centre. The view is worth it.

There are trails you can walk down, you can see the river that goes through town, and the Fairy Lake... it’s beautiful. Sometimes you see deer in the bush laying down resting.

This lookout is such a fantastic spot, with an amazing view across the lake and beyond. It's quite hard to find (you can drive to it) but it's well worth it when you're there. Would thoroughly recommend.

Wow......simply mesmerizing n breathtaking view. The lake was mostly frozen with little bit of water during this time of the year. In a 3 day trip we visited this place twice.... Will surely visit next time to see fall colors of Huntsville from the top

We had a perfect morning to visit - huge, gentle snowflakes fell as we looked out over a frozen, snowy vista. Truly lovely. Pity the litter around the grounds negatively flavored what was an otherwise beautiful start to our day. Definitely worth a trip up...More

Lions Lookout is lovely. The area has sufficient parking. Most of the views are picturesque. You can sit quietly on the large expanses of bed rock or bring a chair and sit under the shady pines. We like to go right to the edge and...More
