West Harrison Look - Out Tower

If you like to get some fresh air and go for a hike, these is a wonderful old Forestry Look Out Tower along the West Side of Harrison Lake. Starting at km “0” on the Sts’Ailes FSR (Formally Harrison West FSR) travel to 24.5 km, turn right, travel approximately 0.75 km, turn left up an old logging road and find a place to park. 75 m up that old road you will see the Trail Head. From here it is approximately a 2 hour hike to the Tower, but the trip is worth it.
Here is the picture of it.

Weaver Lake Boating

There is no better way to spend a day than on the water. Weaver Lake is a medium sized lake, large enough to spend a few days exploring, but not large enough to get lost. Bring your own boat, use the public boat launch, spend a memorable day on the water. At the end of the day pull your boat up to the shore or tie it up to the dock.
