 2 (easy) 9 km return 200 metres The trailhead for this hike is 42 km north of Nordegg, along the Forestry Trunk Road (Hwy 734), 600m beyond the Brown Creek Recreation Area. The trail follows an old dirt road to the summit of a small peak with a fire lookout at the top.  Various montane/subalpine flowers will dominate this hike. Views of the prairies to the east and peaks to the west, as well as the Brazeau River to the north will make this a worthwhile trip.

Alternate hike: Baldy Lookout
 Best done from May on.
