This Aermotor LX-24 lookout is located on the Sacramento Ranger District, Lincoln National Forest, and was erected in 1926. The Weed lookout is the oldest standing lookout on the Lincoln National Forest. The tower is 48 feet high and is topped by a 7X7 foot steel cab.

The site did contain a cabin and shed, which were removed in 1978. The tower originally had wooden steps but were replaced by metal ones in 1966.
