Judah Hill provides the perfect starting point for your circle tour trip. Be sure to grab a coffee and a snack at J’s Java Domain before heading up the hill because once you arrive, you won’t want to leave. Judah Hill provides stunning views of the Land of the Mighty Peace and leads to one of Peace River’s most incredible and historical lookout points – Sagitawa Lookout.
Get There: Drive down Main Street (100 Street) to the bottom of Main, then turn left onto 102 Avenue. Follow this to 102 Avenue, turn right and cross the Heart River bridge. Turn left onto 104 Avenue and follow the Hwy 744 signs.
Just imagine watching an ever changing landscape unfold in front of your eyes as you ascend to the top of Judah Hill, to one of the region’s most treasured lookout points - Sagitawa Lookout. In Cree, Sagitawa means “where rivers meet.” Here, you will find the Hart, Peace and Smoky rivers join. The view is spectacular in the spring when the wildflowers and the green hues from the hills emerge. And in the fall, you can expect a vast and stunning tapestry of coloured hills that will almost take your breath away. In the day-use area, you will find historical information, picnic tables, and unlimited options for stunning photo backdrops with family and friends.
There is something so peaceful about seeing the Peace River valley in a white blanket of snow, and Judah Hill has spectacular views and is an accessible way to get a clear view of the stunning winter valley views. On sunny days it looks like millions of diamonds blanketing the valley, and there is such a soulful feel to the valley on foggy and cloudy days. So bring your snowshoes and take a tour around. There is so much beauty to see up Judah Hill in the winter.
