Mule Peak Lookout was built in 1936 at a cost of $2,800. It is a C-3 14' x 14' wooden groundhouse with catwalk. Reached only by trail in the Sequoia National Forest, all the materials were delivered by mules and horses. Updated with solar power and single pane windows, it remains in active service.
