The lookout is a great place to drive up to the top, have a picnic and enjoy the view on a clear day. Views to the southeast (overlooking Merritt and Lower Nicola and southwest Stoyoma Mountain) are great, but the weather can be unpredictable. A good day use site on a clear day.

Located northwest of Merritt, access is via Promontory Lookout Forest Service Road. Take Highway 8 from Merritt heading west for 10.4 km,turn right and onto the short paved section of road accessing the regional district waste disposal site. Keep left at the gate and drive up this steep and narrow, rutted road for 2.8 km where there will be an obvious fork in the road. Keep left driving over the cattle guard and just keep going for another 9.7 km to the top of the mountain. 4x4 vehicle highly recommended. Snow can linger in shaded corners well into mid June.
