Thomas Hill Lookout served as a Patrol Point for the Linfor Hill Lookout.
The 20′ pole platform was built in 1934 and abandoned in 1950.
Surprising this platform still exists, although it has fallen over. The cement footings, pole legs, and railings are all still here and recognizable. Would love to know what year this platform finally fell over after years of being abandoned but it does not appear to have gotten many, if any, visits in the years it has sat on this lonely mountain top.
Below is a photo of NED HILL LOOKOUT taken by Eric Willhite. This is what the platform tower would have looked like had it not fallen over.
