The topographic map does not give the actual on ground contours. The Hardwood Lookout is a very pointed peak dropping 15-20 meters on all sides. It is capped with a 10 foot tall stone monument with a plaque giving tribute to Douglas McDonald Hains (1892-1955) for his efforts to conserve Canada's Resources of forest, field and stream. The actual High Point, located to one side of the monument, has numerous outstanding white pines, perhaps the largest/tallest white pines east of the Rockies.
The Park has an .8km loop trail complete with a guide book which corresponds with the numbered posts along the trail offering some insight into the ecology of the hardwood forest mixed with white pine.
