Could not find hiking trail, no signage found. Restroom facilities locked, limited parking was available. Nice overlook of Little Current and north channel with great fall colors.

Nice spot to view the island. Did not enjoy all the writings on the benches. We went there with friends from the island. They brought us to the site.

Short drive from town you can find the McLean's Mountain lookout point. There are two picnic tables for those wishing to enjoy lunch while overlooking the town.

Spectacular view of this paradise island. One of the many spots to enjoy the Manitoulin views. Put this one on your itinerary.

Easy access from Little Current, watch for the signs, from Hwy 6 or Hwy 540, well worth the steep climb. The views are amazing, you can see forever along the north shore of the island and beyond.

Very close ride from Little Current! Gravel road to the top, steep and curvy for a short section but worth "the view"! Picnic tables available, rustic rest stop as well! Great backdrop for pictures!

This is a simple lookout over the North Channel. There are public washrooms, parking, and a wooden lookout structure to stand on. It is a very short drive from Little Current, but there isn't any hiking or activities once you are there. Great place to...More

Just a lookout point. You can pull over for a minutes and have a look then be on your way. If you miss it, no big deal. It is basically the same view you get driving along the road.
