Flag Point Lookout
Flag Point Lookout sits at 5,650 foot elevation on Flag Point Butte. The original lookout was built ca. 1924. It was a 6 foot x 6 foot observation cabin and the staff person had to climb a 40 foot timber pole to reach the platform. In 1932 the Forest Service built a standard L-4 style lookout on a 30 foot pole frame tower to replace the earlier structure. Some reconstruction occurred in 1955. The present lookout is a 15 x 15 foot R-6 Flat Top Style built in 1973. Flag Point lookout is staffed during the summer, playing a key role in the detection of fires on the Barlow Ranger District and adjoining lands. The lookout is surrounded by Badger Creek Wilderness.
