Although not located on National Forest land, this 18' wooden tower with L-4 cab, built in 1941, served the Wenatchee National Forest from its vantagepoint across the Columbia River until the 1980's. Access to the lookout was through private property, so the tower was not a victim of vandalism like so many others. In 1999, the cab was moved to the Columbia Breaks Fire Interpretive Center at Entiat.
