Cahto Peak Lookout was dedicated July 10, 1934, following construction of a road to the summit of Cahto (Signal) Peak by the U.S. Forest Service. The site is one of the highest points in Mendocino County and is easily visible from 35 miles away. The lookout has not been staffed since 1990 due to budget cuts.
