Looking for a fantastic photo-op with a gorgeous view of rolling hills?
Well Dorset Lookout Tower is set to reopen on Victoria Day Weekend and the panoramic view from the top of this 30 metre tall tower is breath taking, sitting a full 142 metres above the nearby Lake of Bays.
Originally used as a fire lookout during the first half 20th century, the tower was rebuilt with an additional five metres in 1967 to give visitors an unparalleled view of the Algonquin Highlands.
Located north of the Town of Dorset, off highway 35, the tower is visited by at least 60,000 people every year, with as many as 600 cars visiting every day during the Autumn season when the leaves begin to change colour.
While the tower might be the main attraction, the area also has ground level lookouts and a hiking trail.
When: Opens Victoria Day Weekend (May 19 – 21)
Time: 9 am to 6 pm
Where: Off Highway 35, North of the village of Dorset
Price: $1 walk in, 6$ drive in
