Radar Hill is a tourist area just south of Tofino.

There is a very good shot to the south. There is a thin ring of fir trees that obscure the view but 6m through 432 proved very good into Puget Sound and points south. There is a rock wall at the back of the lot which might serve as a reflector. The viewpoint looks primarily west, but a SE shot is possible if you can carry your gear out to the viewpoint rail; it might be 10-12 yards from the parking lot. Consider making a CN78 to CN79 microwave shot if other rovers are in the area.

Driving directions: This site is easy to get to. The road is paved all the way to the top. Two parking lots are at the end of the road a short distance from the highway. Mike K7MDL prefers the upper lot.

Restrictions: The gate is closed at night by park rangers. $10 (Canadian) is required to enter park, payable at a self service machine so bring cash. There is an outhouse available.
