Saddle Mountain Lookout
The Saddle Mountain Lookout trail is an 8.5 km out-and-back hiking route that will take you up to a scenic vantage point with 360° panoramic views. Making your way to the summit looks near impossible from the bottom of the trail; however, the climb is much easier than you think and loops around the backside of the peak to provide amazing views overlooking Upper Arrow Lake and the surrounding mountains. Pair this with an overnight stay atop the mountain for some breathtaking views at sunrise.

Route Description for Saddle Mountain Lookout
Hiking up to the Saddle Mountain Lookout is an amazing adventure that will produce some spectacular views of the surrounding mountainous landscape and will provide you with a great sense of accomplishment at having reached such a breathtaking mountain top perch. The route sets out from the trailhead and climbs steadily uphill through the heavily-wooded lower slope of the mountain before breaking out into the subalpine terrain. From here, the trail will become more rocky and technical as you work your way through a series of switchbacks. Eventually, the trail will skirt around the backside of the summit to bring you up to the amazing lookout atop Saddle Mountain. From here, you can take in the amazing views across the rugged BC landscape and even stay the night in the building before heading back along the same trail to return to the parking area below.
