Gobblers Knob Lookout to the southwest of Mt. Rainier is the closest to the peak of the four lookouts in the National Park and a popular hiking destination. Built in 1933, the two story frame NPS design structure with 14’x14’ live-in cab with catwalk has been restored and is also used by backcountry rangers as a standby detection site.
