    Directions to Trailhead

    The Boulder Mountain Lookout is a quick 2.4 km out-and-back hiking route in Revelstoke that leads up to a vantage point overlooking the city. While the route is largely forested, it does break out onto a rocky outcrop to provide awesome views of the surrounding area, including the majestic Mount Mackenzie. This is a great family hike that is fairly easy but offers a big wow-factor.
