Geocache Description:

All that remains of the Lightning Peak Lookout are the concrete foundation blocks that once anchored it to the mountain. The lookout was destroyed in 1960.

Idaho Geocachers


You can drive within a few feet of the lookout with a 4WD vehicle with tires capable of handling the sharp rocks present on forest service roads. The lookout is approximately 30 miles east of Yellowpine, ID.


For additional information on this and other forest fire lookouts see the GC15059 Idaho Forest Fire Lookout Challenge. Another great source of information is the "Points of Prominence" book by Richard H. Holm Jr.
