Lions Lookout Trail

Rear of Canada Summit Centre, Huntsville , ON


If you’re looking for an all-encompassing view of Huntsville, look no further than Lion’s Lookout. A quick drive from downtown Huntsville and you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world as you gaze down at the town below. This vantage point provides magnificent views of the Muskoka River and Fairy Lake and is a favourite spot to take in the fall colours. The lookout structure, a four pillar, red roofed gazebo sits upon a natural rock and is bordered on one side by an aged stone wall. Take a moment to peruse the signage boards which provide a brief history of the area as well as an interesting perspective on how the landscape below has changed over the past 100 years. Be prepared for the steep drive up! There are two small parking lots situated above and below the lookout structure. There are several picnic tables scattered throughout the site to have lunch on. The trail is 1.3 km long and it is considered an intermediate level trail because of the steep inclines throughout the hike.
