As fire lookout trails go, Ironstone, is relatively short and easy one. It is almost all rideable and the view from the top is easily worth twice the effort expended to get there. This is the best single viewpoint in the Crowsnest area with its 360 degree mountain panorama encompassing the Crowsnest Valley to the north and the Castle Valley to the south.
