Paget Lookout is an old fire lookout with impressive views of the surrounding peaks and is well worth the effort to get there. Hopefully this letterbox will give you extra incentive.

Go west on the Trans Canada Hwy 1 to the British Columbia border, then continue 5.5 km to the west end of Wapta Lake and turn right on unmarked road and park near map sign.

Walk east to beginning of trail behind outhouse and go left at first jct. Continue to jct for Sherbrook Lake and go right and up to Paget Lookout. Continue north on trail 45 steps as it climbs up Paget MT to 2 dead standing trees on right making a V. Walk 5 steps behind them to large pine tree with smaller one behind it. LB is at back base of large pine under a large rock and needles.
