The trail to the lookout is an old closed fire road.

View from lookout include a number of L/O sites and former L/O sites. Including Limestone Mountain to north, Mockingbird Hill and Black Roack the south. Devils Head and Mt Alymer can be seen to south west, west are valleys of Red Deer and Clearwater rivers.

Foothills and prairies compromise the view in easterly direction.
