The 20’ wooden tower with a R-6 14’x14’ flattop live-in cab with catwalk was constructed in 1964. It is the fifth tower the Ochoco National Forest has built on this site. The first was a 10’ platform in 1919, followed in 1923 by a 35’ open platform tower with a ground cabin. In 1929 a cab was built on the platform. In 1933 a 20’ L-4 cab was constructed on a 20’ and served 31 years until the present lookout was built. It is in active service.
