Spy Glass Peak - Lisa's Lookout Series #2
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Spy Glass Peak Lookout tower is located at 5,318' elevation with great views of the area. There is a gate about half a mile from the lookout and I recommend parking there and hiking the rest of the way in; the hike is pretty easy and well worth it! Parking coords: N 47 50.218 W 116 11.440. This is the second cache in the 'Lookout Series'.
The cache is a clear shoe boxed sized container with a blue lid with the usual goodies and is located near the lookout. Please do not attempt to climb up this one -it's not maintained nor currently staffed.
Spy Glass Peak lookout started in 1922 with a 20' platform tower and log cabin, a 50' pole tower with 7x7' cab replaced the first tower in 1930. In 1943, an L-4 cab was added for living quarters on the ground, later remodeled for storage, and is still on the summit. The present 53' treated timber tower with L-4 cab, built in 1950, was last staffed in 1978.For more pictures of the lookout tower: (visit link)
