Fire Lookouts Of The Darrington Area




At one time the distant glows of the lamps lit by the "Lookout Man" shown at night on nearly every major mountain in the Darrington area.


Today only 4 fire lookouts are still standing, but the legacy of the era of the fire lookout still remains. Several hiking trails will take you to the places where once the "Lookout Man" stood watching over the forest seeing for miles from his mountaintop aerie.
