Geocache Description:

You can reach Big Hill Lookout by driving up the Entiat River Road from the town of Entiat, WA, then just past Box Canyon, turn right and drive over Shady Pass to the lookout. At the time the cache was hidden, the road was graded, graveled, and could be driven on in a car. The elevation at the lookout is 6827 ft.

Big Hill Lookout was constructed in 1933. It was a 24' pole L-4 tower and after nearly 20 years of operation was removed in the 1950's. An accompanying garage converted to Aircraft Warning Service living quarters in 1942 is still on the summit.

Some of the points of interest seen from the top are: Mission Ridge, Stormy Mountain, Stuart Range, and the top of Mt. Rainier.

The black and white photo on the right was taken in 1934.
