  • Site Description:The Begbie Fire Lookout recreation site is a former fire lookout tower built in the early 1970's to aid with detecting forest fires. During its operational life, the lookout tower was staffed with an observer during the fire season, which was typically from early May to late September.

  • Driving Directions: The Begbie Fire Lookout recreation site is located about 15 minutes south of 100 Mile House via Highway 97. There is a highway rest stop on the east side of the highway at Begbie Summit, with parking, picnic tables and toilets. A short but somewhat difficult steep and narrow footpath leads to the lookout. For those looking for an easier route to the top, an alternate option is available by walking along the service road that winds its way around the backside of the summit.
