The trail to Viewland Mountain is a well-maintained, fairly easy walk through a forest of Douglas fir, some cedar, and in the lower reaches, some towering cottonwood. False Solomon's seal and false box provide much of the thick ground cover. On top, the mountain lives up to its name, providing an excellent panorama in spite of the clear-cut blocks visible on all sides. To the northeast you can see all the way down the North Arm of Quesnel Lake, largest in the Cariboo, 10 km long and as deep as 610 m, to the snow-covered peaks of the Cariboo Mountains, Mitchell Lake/Niagara Provincial Park, and directly east to Wells Gray Provincial Park. Horsefly Lake is the large body of water to the south.
