This is a high elevation day-use site which is located at an refurbished fire lookout building. A great spot for family outings; views are spectacular and flowers are lovely in season. There is also a 2 km loop trail below the lookout that provides access to viewpoints on the rock bluffs. There are interpretive displays on fire lookouts inside the tower.

Note: This site contains ramps used by hand gliders. These ramps can be hazardous due to steep drop offs. PLEASE STAY OFF THE RAMPS.

Driving Directions: From Kaslo, head west on highway #31A for 11 km to the Blue Ridge Forest Services Road, then follow signs. Follow the main road for 11.9 km to the lookout, staying right at the 7.0 km junction. This road is suitable for 2wd vehicles.
