Where the trail re-enters the woods from the powerlines is the first lookout. You can see the long narrow pond below and also see all the way to Chaleur Bay near Eel River Bar. The trail gently climbs a long ridge with several more lookouts on your left. The trail ends at a lookout at the end of the ridge. The lookout looks up Chaleur Bay towards Campbellton. If the weather is clear you can see the peak of Sugarloaf Mountain in Campbellton poking above another flat topped hill straight off the end of the lookout.
Coming in to Dalhousie on Renfrew Street (Route 134) turn left onto Goderich Street. Follow Goderich Street past the High School to the end where you will find École Aux Quatre Vents. Park in the back of the parking lot. You will find the trail entering the woods at the back left corner of the school.
Follow the trail for 200 meters until you come to powerlines. Turn left on the ATV Trail on the other side of the powerlines. After another 200 meters the trail will turn sharply to the right and enter the woods. Follow this trail all the way to the bench at the lookout at the peak of Dalhousie Mountain.
