The first lookout at Deer Ridge was in the 1920s when a Cupola cabin was built.
1935 a pole L-4 tower was built.
1949 a 40′ pole L-4 was built.
1965 the current 41′ TT Flat was built.
This is a very nice, well kept lookout rental. And as of 2023 it had just gotten a recent inspection certification clearance.
Several hiking trails can be enjoyed from the lookout along Ruby ridge and the huckleberries are plenty in August. Be bear aware this is grizzly country.
Most of all the footings can still be found from the previous lookouts.
This lookout is not recommended for small children due to the 4 sets of steep stairs.
