New to Duncan, looking for nice spots

Hey people, I just moved to Duncan and joined this site. I saw in these forums some really nice locations all around Duncan, and I'll definitely get to those at some point. I want to know if there's anything closer to the town? Someplace to go on a weeknight and just watch a sunset or something. In the meantime while I get settled in, I'll search google maps or look through this island map book I picked up at Duncan Garage.

Welcome to the site! The easiest and closest spot to town is probably prevost/sicker. One of the best views in town is here: https://www.vioffroad.com/forum/routes-destinations/mount-prevost

That's perfect! Do you know if that road is actively used by loggers? I have a radio that I might be able to tune in.
