Located on a knob jutting into the flat, forested and sagebrush plain south of the Grand Canyon National Park, Red Butte Lookout is a practical structure designed to blend with the arid site. The design done for the Kaibab National Forest is based on the USFS CL 100 plan but with many modifications. The 14' x 14' cab with tinted windows has a permanent roof overhang for shade. There is a metal catwalk and two cistern tanks for water. The lookout is reached by a 1.5 mile trail.
