Dome Lookout is a USDA Forest Service Standard Plan CL-100 to CL-106 series type metal 14’x14’ R6 flattop with metal catwalk on a 10’ cinder block base with storage room constructed in 1965 replacing a 1932 L-4 ground house. Dome is currently un-staffed and is being utilized as a communications site due to the Dome fire in 1996, vandalism, and a re-burn by the Las Conchas Fire in 2001.
