Geocache Description:

Steliko Point Lookout

Steliko Point Lookout is located in the mountains of central Washington, seven miles northwest of Entiat. Steliko began as a camp in 1925. The present structure, a 10' L-4 built in 1947, is used for emergency detection, usually during lightning storms.

The Elevation is only 2586', therefore is can be accessed in the early spring. We had no trouble driving to it on March 5, although I did use 4WD while driving through a snowdrift. From the top you can see Entiat Ridge, the Chelan Mountains, and other lookout points. Looking down below you will see the Entiat River valley.

This lookout is in very good shape. It must have been restored recently. It is still used during the summer months when fire danger is highest, and is accessible both to the FS shed below and the Entiat Ranger station.

The cache is hidden near the top, but out of sight of the lookout. Be sure to hide it well to prevent visitors to the lookout from finding it.

Directions: Near the town of Entiat, turn off Hiway 97A and head northwest on the Entiat River Road to Ardenvoir. After passing through Ardenvoir, turn right at Steliko, and follow the Forest Service Road 5310 approximately 1-1/2 miles to the lookout.

The cache is a large green ammo box. Original contents include a FTF button, a WA State Geocoin, a Canadian Geocoin, and a travel bug. Enjoy the drive and the view.
