Ironstone Lookout

Another lower-ish elevation hike to get those legs moving and in the hopes of avoiding copious amounts of snow! Ironstone Lookout is a moderate hike (although it is 15 km return) to an AB Wildfire lookout south of the Crowsnest Pass. This hike shares a trailhead with the York Creek / Plane Crash hike.
