Mile Post 242.4

This is the farthest north we went on BRP. The hill definitely resembles Alligator back. This overlook offers an exhibit on raptors and mammals of the area. Once called ?varmints? and killed on sight, hawks, owls, bears, foxes and snakes are now recognized as an inseparable part of our environment. This is the best overlook to observe them.
