Geocache Description:

Pilot Peak Lookout Cache was hidden to fulfill the requirements of GC15059 Idaho Forest Fire Lookout Challenge

Idaho Geocachers

Pilot Peak Lookout is manned by Jim, part of a husband/wife team who have been manning lookouts for three years. The fires of 2007 burned the north slope of Pilot Peak and Jim was evacuated and finished out the season at other lookouts.

Black clouds of flying ants are everywhere at this elevation.

You'll need an ATV or motorcyle to reach this lookout. There are several recent mudslides blocking the road to the lookout. If/when the road is repaired, you may be able to drive a high clearance vehicle to the top.

A great source of information about fire lookouts in the Payette National Forest is the "Points of Prominence" book by Richard H. Holm Jr.
