It's an 8km hike along the Lake Minnewanka Shoreline Trail to the Aylmer Pass turnoff.
From this, you can head straight out to Aylmer Pass, and cross into the Ghost River wilderness, or turn off to the lookout.
Either trail can also be used to summit Mount Aylmer.
Though it's a longer trail, the lack of elevation of difficulty for the first 8km means it goes pretty quickly, and the lookout has a great view.
