The Lookout Trail is an excellent climb just above the visitor centre that offers spectacular views of the fjord and nearby tablelands. While the majority of the walk is there-and-back (the bulk of the climb to the top), there is a small, mostly flat loop at the top hat offers you a choice of a short and steep ascent up a set of stairs or a longer, gentler hike along a boardwalk to the top. However, this trail has a tendency to be especially muddy (though this may have been at least partially due to the construction that was being carried out at the time), with many smaller dogs ending up looking like they've been dragged through the stuff like a mop: by all means, ensure you've got sensible shoes!

Great at the top. Incredible views.
Trail was very muddy in sections. Seemed we were looking down most of the time to avoid slipping/tripping. Rained a fair amount yesterday.

(July 2018) the trail is heavily eroded and many of the built in steps are just hanging timbers with all the dirt fill swept away, but work is underway to improve the trail. The view from the top at the red chairs, however, is fantastic and well worth it. Early in the morning I saw moose walking about on a nearby hill.

Not a real easy hike for a beginner like me.. but if you take your time and enjoy the journey up.. it's worth it!!!

This has one of the best lookouts if the sky is clear.
