Lookout Point Trail Sign at the parking lot in Killbear Provincial Park.

Killbear Provincial Park has so much to offer which includes many great hiking trails. One of the hiking trails we really enjoyed was the Lookout Point Trail. The trail is a 3.5km loop that takes about 1.5 hours to complete. The trail winds through the forest and takes you to a rocky outcrop and gives you great viewpoints of Georgian Bay at the halfway point. You start at the turn off to the Blind Bay Campgrounds and the parking lot for Lookout Point Trail is just on the entrance to that road. There is a large parking lot and a sign that shows you the route you will be taking.

Lookout Point Trail is a moderate hike but still requires proper walking shoes whether that be running shoes or hiking shoes. This hike is both dog and kid friendly as it is not overly a hard hike.

The trail starts off with a nice wooden boardwalk that winds through the mixed forest. It makes for an easy walk on a nice study surface. Eventually you will start to climb upwards which will be taking you to the rocky surface where you will be able to have breathtaking views of Georgian Bay.

Here on this rocky area you can enjoy a picnic lunch or just relax and take in the views of Georgian Bay.

The trail then continues along down the rocks back into the forest. Here you continue on the loop heading back to the parking lot. After walking the loop we felt the lower piece of the loop is both quicker and an easier walk if you are looking for the easier path instead of doing the full loop.

We really enjoyed this trail and would recommend it to anyone that has the time while visiting Killbear Provincial Park!
