NOTE:  The drive to Blueberry Mountain takes about 50 minutes from Perth and Almonte; 60 minutes from Carleton Place and 10 minutes longer from Arnprior.

The hike up Blueberry Mountain will take about 40 minutes on a well marked, moderately-inclined, forested trail. For the last 5 minutes, the climb to the look-out is more steeply inclined requiring sturdy shoes or boots. There will be a presentation at the look-out lasting about 30 minutes; weather permitting.

It can be cooler at the look-out, so bring an extra layer of clothing, along with water and a light lunch to have during the presentation. Treats and coffee will await hikers back near the registration area upon their return which will likely be around 12:30.
