Original (1934) CCC era lookout built for USFS was transferred to CDF in the late 1950s. In 1973 the BC-3 cab was replaced by a 732-6A type cab design. The remodel is Plan Number 757-lA. Facility record's correspondence states that except for page one, cab plans were "the same as used on previous lookouts; for example, Fredonyer Lookout." Staffed as needed.
