Looking up Yosemite Valley, the Stanislaus National Forest Lookout on Trumbull Peak was built by the CCC from 1934-35. The site -- awaiting restoration -- includes a 41’ steel tower with 7’ x 7’ metal cab plus a 19’ x 30’ C-2 quarters built partly on stilts because of the steep terrain. The bedroom resembles a lookout with windows on three sides.
