5 Best lookouts outside Halton

With everything that’s been happening with the spread of COVID-19, it can be difficult to balance taking measures to avoid contracting and/or spreading the virus, and still getting out and enjoying life.

However, if you want to try and get out and enjoy nature, there are still some things you can do that don’t involve large crowds.

These are the five best lookouts outside Mississauga.

5: Lions Lookout

Located in Huntsville, Lions Lookout is atop a steep trail climb–about 1.5 kms, and once you reach the top, it offers an absolutely stunning view of Huntsville, Fairy Lake, and the Muskokas.
