Constructed in 1923 by the old Chelan National Forest and staffed every year since, Goat Peak Lookout offers spectacular views of the Methow River valley and the North Cascades, an area with frequent lightning strikes. Reach by trail from Early Winters campground, the original D-6 cupola cabin was replaced in 1950 with the current L-4 with catwalk on a 15' timber tower.
