Nice easy hike, not a lot of traffic and pretty sweet view for very little work! Pretty lakes along the way - good option for a pleasant afternoon walk in the woods.

Rather easy trail, good to do with the kids. Nice water lands along the way that make for a few nice pictures. The hike starts at the intersection of the Huron trail (blue square #3) and Ridge road. You will come across a few intersections with other trails, such as #20. The trail up to the lookout is Black diamond #28. Don't be frightened by the black diamond. The trail gets steeper, but remains very accessible. Instead of going strait up to the lookout, why not continu on trail #3 until you reach the road, and then turn around to come back. This will give you a few extra km on your hike and lead you through some nice water lands. The distance to the road is 5 km. The trip there and back, plus the lookout, totals out to about 11-12km and can be done in 3h (that is with breaks to take pictures and enjoy the view). The lookout would be a nice spot to have lunch!
