Hardwood Lookout Trail

The Hardwood Lookout Trail is an approximate 0.8km long loop and is located at Km 14 of the Hwy 60 corridor. This trail takes you through one of Algonquin Parks hardwood forests. At the end of the trail there a great view of Smoke Lake. The Hardwood Lookout Trail guide (available at the East and West gate as well as the trail entrance) talks about the ecology of Algonquin's hardwood forests including the Sugar Maple, Red Maple, Striped Maple, Black Cherry, Beech, Yellow Birch trees as well as the White, Red and Black Spruce trees.

We give the Hardwood Lookout Trail 3 stars for its interesting booklet and large trees.
