Started in 1914 with a crow's nest tree platform lookout and accompanying cabin, a 30' pole tower with a crude cab replaced the tree in 1923. In 1930, a 35' steel tower was constructed. The present 123' Aermotor steel tower, built in 1938, is the tallest lookout tower in the Pacific Northwest! It has been abandoned since the mid-1980's. Evidence suggests the 1930 tower was moved to Grizzly Mtn. where it was built in 1941.
