Fire Lookouts of the Sequoia National Forest

Needles Fire Lookout, courtesy Buck Rock Foundation

In their heyday during the 1930's there were over 8,000 fire lookouts that dotted mountain tops across the United States with over 600 in California.

Today there are only a few hundred in operation. Once considered a proud symbol of our nation's conservation heritage, fire lookouts are a fading legacy. There are 10 lookouts left on the Sequoia National Forest. *8 are manned in the summertime.* Oak Flat Lookout can be rented out, click here for more info!

The Needles and Buck Rock are perhaps the two most spectacularly located. They're perched on high granite needles that also make for some fantastic climbing opportunities!

Neat stuff Carol!

I would love to rent out one of the lookouts sometime. That would be very cool.
