Carson’s Lookout

Named after Gloucester resident Eric Carson (1913-1999), a member of the team who built the first road up the mountain in 1961. The original road was only 32kms long. Gloucester Rotary Club constructed the lookout to commemorate the achievements of the men who blazed this route up the mountain to the north west and New England.
