Awesome experience. View was breath-taking. Beautiful view of Huntville. We went to Lion's Lookout two years back in the Summer. Went again last week but due to the icy track; the drive up to the Lookout point was closed.

Kind of a scary trip up the hill but once on top great view of the town and surrounding lake. The trees are amazing in the fall of the year with the change of colour.

Lions Lookout was bursting in colors during our visit around noon. Cloudy skies made it look more beautiful. Our drive to Huntsville as to view Fall colors and we were amazed by them.

Beautiful place to view fall colours. Accessible through a short hike or by car also. There is some parking space near the lookout point and they have tables and chairs so good picnic spot too. The views are beautiful.

Anyone visiting Huntsville this Fall needs to check out Lion's Lookout. With new interpretive information and a great view over the town and Fairy Lake, the Fall colours never looked better!

This is another great place in the area to view fall colours, and you can overlook the town and area perfectly from this lookout. Take a picnic lunch as there are lots of tables around!
