The last fully functional lookout on the Saratoga Ranger District of the Medicine Bow National Forest is Kennaday Peak. The first structure was built by the CCC in the 1930s, one of six in the area. The present 15’x 15’ R-6 flattop with catwalk was constructed in 1964 on a 10’ concrete block base. A small interpretive site has been established on the lower level for the many visitors who visit the lookout each year.
