Short uphill hike to a ridge providing views of the northern and southern sections of Barrier lake. Trails an be shortened by parking in the upper parking lot of Barrier Lake Day Use.

If you are wanting to get a feel for what it's like to hike to the top of a mountain, this is a good place to start. Not exactly a mountain but it gives you an idea of what to expect.

Trails are in great shape. We missed a corner and ended up at the lake instead of at the top but after turning around we eventually made it up.
