Route Description for Apgar Lookout Trail
The Apgar Lookout Trail is a breath of fresh air way up in the sky. As you perch yourself at the top and lookout for miles, you feel higher than the mountains themselves. The views on this hike are spectacular as you begin walking down a dirt road and start to see the effects on the forest from the Robert Fire. Continuing on, you will begin a steep climb to the lookout point. Hiking for the next 4.3 km, you will peak more than 518 m and find yourself just below the lookout. When you have finished taking in the views, head back the way you came as this is an out-and-back trail.
