The Lookout is a semi-circular terrace providing scenic views of the valley to the west. It was constructed as a lookout and rest spot along the carriage roads built by Adrian Van Sinderen. Overhung by trees in places, this is a great spot for a picnic.

Directions: Follow the Yellow Circle Trail from the main parking area. This 50-minute circuitous ramble briefly follows the river before steadily climbing to the eastern edge of the preserve. The trail then levels-out and passes through a meadow before its final descent to the porch-like overlook. (1.02 miles one-way)
