This relative newcomer to the lookout age, Warner Ridge Lookout also takes advantage of an historic design. The superstructure came from Grass Mountain in 1986, and an oversized vintage replica of a cupola cabin was built on top. This is the only known example of a cupola placed on such a high tower. The lookout is staffed during the summer, and is on the Recreation Rental program in the winter. The tower is listed on the National Historic Lookout Register. Originally there was a cupola atop Logger Butte 2 miles northeast which was removed in 1969.
