Scurvy Mountain Lookout

The historic Scurvy Lookout towers into the sky with whispy white clouds in the background.

Sixty-one miles northeast of Pierce, Idaho, a basic platform tower was built atop this mountain peak in 1917 with the addition of living quarters in the 1920s, and was refurbished in 1952. The Forest Service continued to use the lookout on emergency basis into the 1970s. The Scurvy Lookout is equipped with a woodstove, kerosene lantern, and accomodations for two. It is currently being considered for future use as a rental.  It is reached via a three-mile hike or ATV ride.
