This tiny crows nest cab was constructed in the early 1940s primary to watch over railroad logging operations.
Built atop an 86′ pine tree, the site utilized a tent cabin for living quarters. The Division of Forestry took ownership of the lookout in 1944, outfitting it with a fire finder and radio.
The lookout was abandoned in 1958 but the structure still remains.
