Rutherford-Stevens Lookout

Experience/Attraction, Trails

This small Conservation Area offers a large viewing deck with a spectacular view of Smith’s Bay and Waupoos Island, with Prince Edward Bay and Prince Edward Point lying just beyond. You can watch the gulls cavort over the bay. To the southeast lies the beautiful village of Waupoos, an Indian word for the “land of the running rabbit.” Waupoos Island lies straight ahead, and further back, Point Travers stretches out into Lake Ontario with Timber Island (more than 15 km away) shimmering on the distant horizon.

This scenic picnic spot is located on County Road 13 at Smith’s Bay between Waupoos and Black River in Prince Edward County.
