Hayfork Bally has been a lookout site since at least 1920.
The U.S. Air Force acquired approximately one quarter of an acre near the lookout for an unmanned Gap Filler radar station. The improvements included a concrete block building, two 15,000 gallon underground fuel tanks, antenna tower, fencing and an improved gravel road. The site operated from 1958-63.
The current structure is a USFS National Plan CL-100 13x13 cabin on a 42 foot K-Brace steel tower constructed in 1965.
