Description

Mount Ingalls is the Plumas County high point at 8372 feet.

The lookout was constructed in 1936, a California Region 5 Plan BC-301 on a 10 foot enclosed timber tower.

The structure was dismantled and reconstructed at the Plumas County Fairgrounds in Quincy CA in 1984 where it continues to serve as a fire detection interpretive site to this day.
