  • This is a short hike (only about 1 km) through the woods. It goes up a hill up to a scenic viewpoint overlooking Smoke Lake. It is rated "moderate" because of the hill, but it's worth checking out.....  more »
  • Short hike (1km) over medium terrain. Final incline to lookout fairly steep. Nice view overlooking lake at Lookout.  more »

  • This trail was more involved than I thought it would be but very nice. Steep inclines and declines along the route, but well worth the climb for the lookout. This trail is fairly short and I completed it in under 30 minutes moving at a good pace.
  • A very nice, short trail. Good for getting warmed up. Some sections may be a bit steep for young children or parents carrying small children.
