Soon after the trail climbs out of the Dickey Lake basin meeting the Bull of the Woods trail at two miles. AT this junction you head left along the ridge the trail running gently up the ridge and opening up views as you cross a few talus slopes. Eventually the trail switchbacks twice giving you views of both Jefferson and Hood. A short steeper section brings you to the lookout with it's rock gardens and expansive views. Retrace the route to return to the trailhead.
