A short family hike up to the lookout, not really much to say about this one. Starting out from the Barrier Dam parking lot and heading across the dam towards a fire road (the road is wide and gently sloped) which later turns into a dirt/rock path which is well formed (even has signs). Nice view overlooking the Praires though, you can even see the skyline of Calgary from the summit!
