Buck Mountain Lookout was developed in 1919 by the state as a crow's nest and log cabin. In 1934 a 20' pole L-4 tower was built, and it was replaced in 1961 with the present 14' x 14' flat-gable Washington Department of Natural Resources live-in cab with catwalk on a 20' timber tower. It is maintained by the DNR for emergency use.
