Tom`s Lookout, Madawaska Highlands

This day hiking excursion will be held on BOTH DAYS - Saturday, October 4th and on Sunday, October 5th. The trail begins at Halfway Lake parking area off Long Lake Road. The estimated length is just over 2 kilometres with some constant climbing required at some places. The view from Tom`s Lookout is spectacular especially for that time of the year with almost a 360 degree angle view. There are also other nearby shorter trails for another option to hike any further. The estimated time on a leisurely hike will be up to nearly 5 hours depending on weather that include the transportation shuttle between MKC and the parking area.
