Lookout:  Carrissa

The Carrisa Lookout complex contains the lookout, Observer’s cabin, shed and outhouse.  This 7’ X 7’ Aermotor MC-39 cab sits upon an 80 foot high steel tower erected in 1934. Carrisa’s Observers cabin and shed were constructed in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps.  The site’s structures were restored in 2012, and will be considered for future rental program.  The Carrisa Lookout Complex is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).

The road to the lookout is gated and closed but access to the area by foot is possible.  This site is being converted soon to a cabin rental site, so stay tuned.
