On a clear day the view is superb, with Mt. Rainier only 10 miles to the south, the central Cascades, Olympic Mountains, and Mt. Baker 150 miles to the north. A breathtaking 3,000-foot drop leads down to the White River on the east with Huckleberry Creek on the west. The lookout was built in 1933. It is open to the public during the day.
