BARRIER LAKE FIRE LOOKOUT

This is a popular trail done in a clockwise route leaving from Barrier Lake and is part of several trails done in a circut.It has about a 500M height gain with a additional 125 M from the main trail to the lookout. The circut including the return side trail to the lookout would be 15.7 km. A strong beginner should have no problem with this hike.I done this trail last year about this time,so the fall colours should be nice.

What to Bring;

Your backpack with lunch snacks and water,good boots,poles if you use them,layed clothing with winter gloves and head gear.If you have icers or micro spikes it would be a good idea to bring them this time of year,since I experienced snow in higher elevations on 4 out of my last 5 hikes.We willl be meeting at Shoudice arena to form a car pool.If anyone is driving to the trail head go Barrier Dam day use area and we should be there before 9;30am.If you have any concerns about this hike email me thru the site or text/call me at[masked]-3790.Due to the rough terrain from the main trail to the lookout I would not recommend any small dogs. MEMBERS ONLY Only you know your physical limits and what your body can endure,so be aware of the km,s and elevation
