Description

The Lookout Trail is a wide crushed rock trail. The main part of the trail loops around two stone lookouts that were built by a chain gang. The lookouts overlook Lily Lake and are high enough to see the city and the Bay of Fundy. On either side of the lookouts the trail goes down the hill to the Trans Canada Trail below. The other branch of the trail climbs further up the hill and meets up with the Fisher Lake Access Trail.
