Basic Info
Total Sites:

Hiking, mountain biking, stargazing, and wildlife viewing are popular among guests to this lookout.

An important component of the historic fabric of the watershed is the trail system. Hikers may want to wander trails that originally followed older aboriginal routes. "Chief" Elwin Frye, a packer for the Forest Service, identified a portion of the Snow Camp Trail as an Indian travel route. The trail is one of the oldest in the Forest, and provides access to Windy Valley, a pristine mountain meadow with a small crystal clear creek.

At night the lookout is an ideal setting for stargazing, as constellations and planets put on a dazzling display.
