Blue Hill Lookout was one of the original sites chosen for a Fire look out site and is still an active lookout.
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.

CommentThis is both a private residence and a work place. Visitors are restricted from entering beyond the fencing at the top of the hill unless invited in. Be respectful! A picinic table is provided below the fence, not far from a heli-pad below the fencing. Watch out for helicopters!!
