First used about 1934 with a ground-mounted L-4 cab staffed by the Forest Service, ownership was later transferred to the State of Washington. The present 40' timber tower with DNR live-in cab, built in 1966, overlooks some of the driest flash fuels in the state of Washington. The DNR contracted this tower out to Gebber's Logging Company who staffed it up to July 1997. It then went in to emergency status and listed on the National Historic Lookout Register. The tower was damaged during the Carlton Complex wildfire of 2014 but repaired. Known lookout personnel: 1947: Eugene Lovejoy; 1953: T.N. Hickox; 1955-1958: Jim Sutton; 1960-1961: Elsie Bolton.
