Bearwallow Lookout was erected in 1923 on the Glenwood Ranger District. An Aermotor LX-24, it is 35 beet high with a 7'x7' wooden cab. The lookout was extensively remodeled in 1984, having the original windows completely replaced, new stairs installed, and the roof and exterior walls covered with steel. Bearwallow is actually a complex with two log cabins and a log shed, all three which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The lookout itself is considered a non-contributing structure within the complex (site) boundaries.
