An easy 1/2 mile hike leads to the observation tower which provides a spectacular 360-degree panoramic view of the mountains. The Foothills Parkway is not as busy as other roads in the park, so this is a great place to get away from the crowds and traffic, especially during the peak fall leaf color viewing times in October. The Parkway is 20 miles long with many scenic pull-offs. Look Rock is at the highest point along the Parkway. The National Park Service maintains a picnic area and a campground at Look Rock.
There's plenty of activity to do here or just sit on the veranda and relax!

I have 2 very well behaved dogs. Bobo is a terrier mix. We think maybe part Airedale? I've had him about 9 years and he's awesome. He keeps me safe and the bears run off. He prefers to be outside. His favorite place to sit is on the front porch. I want him to be happy so I've decided to allow him to continue his routine and be outside as long as weather permits. If you're uncomfortable with this please let me know and I will keep him inside with me during your visit. My other dog is Max. He's mostly boxer and about 1 year old. He has a broken leg at this time so he's required to stay confined indoors with me at all times.
Other things to note: You might want to bring groceries with you at arrival. It's 10 miles back to town.
