"WA Trip Reports > Fire Lookouts"

In the 1920's and 30's, the Forest Service built a number of lookouts in Washington in order to spot fires. By the 1970's, most were abandoned as fire detection began to rely on other technologies.
There are a number—by my count, 92 of them, as of 2010—of old fire lookouts still standing on summits across Washington. It is my goal to eventually visit every single one. Access my Washington trip reports in the "Fire Lookouts" category via the Washington main page or the dropdown Sidebar to the left.
