The west side of the loop trail is in cooler moist forest on an old road that follows the western slopes of the deep and narrow Lizard Creek valley. This western part of the trail offers good views of the impressive and rugged limestone slopes of the Lizard Range, spanning from northwest to southeast.
From the ridge and summit, hikers can look down to Island Lake. Mount Fernie and the Three Sisters are part of the panoramic view from Mount Baldy. The trail is well-defined and -signed.
