It was fun to drive up there... after we figured out where to go. I didn't read the previous review prior to going there in late August. To avoid getting lost, take Forbes Hill Drive instead of Park Drive.

At the top, there are actually two little parking areas. The first holds about 4-5 cars and the second holds a few more and is closer to the structure. Good to know if you are traveling with someone who has difficulty walking.

Further up the hill, past the lookout structure, there is path that takes you to another area that provides a view to the west. There are exposed roots and rocks. It is not a developed viewing area.

I found it hard to find. Took the first Park Rd. with a small green sign pointing out the direction. When we reached a fork in the road there was no signage. After a few minutes we turned around and there were red and white signs pointing the way.
With all the lush vegetation it was the view wasn't great. When the leaves turn or in winter, it would be great.

The sun was shining so the view was clear. Unfortunately Huntsville has grown a lot in recent years so lots of rooftops to look down on. It was, though, very peaceful at the top and witha small carpark is unlikely to be overcrowded. Folk here are friendly and will pass the time of day with you so that is always a plus if you like meeting people - what is the point of travelling if you don't? The road is narrow - abit like driving the back roads in Cornwall (UK) but without the drystone walls!

Like others have pointed out there is a steep but short drive to the top. It'll make you sweat a little but it's safe. Best view in town. Beautiful view of the lake.

Lions Lookout point is the highest point in Huntsville, Ontario.You can drive up there and see almost the whole town which overlooks the Muskoka River. In the fall it is a beautiful place to visit to see all the beautiful fall colours (amazing). Anyone coming to Huntsville must take a ride up to top and see this amazing view.
