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.

We hiked up to the lookout, which was a non-descript 1 hr walk, but the view was well worth it! Highly recommended.

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.

View SO worth the not-so-smooth drive up the mountain - beware of road ruts, sliding gravel, steep blind curves. Could never tire of this view of historic North Channel. The wooden viewing deck is badly in need of replacing and visitors need to learn to...More

A nice plateau that lets you see all the scenery around the island, the wind turbines are an awesome display of technology but 2 different phones using cellular network/GPS, even reviewing the photos on Google and TripAdvisor couldn't help us find the exact Lookout entrance,...More
