Carbondale Lookout

At this time of year, it's all about hiking at lower elevation and being in or near the foothill regions doesn't hurt! Enter Carbondale Lookout in the Castle region.

A moderate, super straightforward hike to the top of a bald hill is what you're in for, with the bonus of arriving at a fire lookout! If you've done hikes like Saskatoon and Wedge, chances are you'll love the Carbondale Lookout.
