Built in 1932, Anthony Peak Lookout is a L-4 pyramid roof design. The wooden 14’x14 live-in cab with catwalk sits atop a 10’ wood tower that was enclosed in 1941 for year-long staffing as an enemy aircraft warning station during World War II. The lookout, which remains active, was restored in 1993 through the cooperative efforts of the U.S. Forest Service and the Twin Rocks Landowners Association.
