A.Y. Jackson Lookout

The A.Y. Jackson Lookout offers a scenic view of High Falls as it cascades 55 m into the Sudbury Basin.

The site offers three trails, including a self-guided Geological Walking Tour which is wheelchair accessible.

The lookout is also part of a self-guided driving tour that examines the unique rock types that created the vast mineral resources of the Sudbury Basin. The Welcome Centre has washroom facilities and picnic areas.

This trail is developed and supported through the efforts of the Rainbow RoutesTrail Association. Rainbow Routes is a not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to the development and promotion of non-motorized trails generally, and the Trans Canada Trail in particular for the City of Greater Sudbury.
