On the other side of the parking lot is another trail connecting to some views looking west. This is a dirt pathway. Throughout Radar Hill there are some interpretive signs and a memorial called the Kap'Yong Memorial. It honours the memory of the 2nd Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry which served during the Korean War.

The history of the hill dates back to the days when it was once a radar installation during the Second World War. All visitors to the park must have a Park Use Permit.
