This early version Aermotor LX-24 lookout, is located on the Sacramento Ranger District, and is the oldest surviving lookout on the Lincoln National Forest.  Erected in 1926, the 7’ X 7’ cab sits on a 48 foot high steel tower that originally had wooden steps (replaced in 1966 with metal steps).  The site also contained a wood framed cabin that was removed in 1978.  Weed Lookout is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Access to the area is via vehicle traffic if the gate is unlocked with access to the tower itself not available to the public.
