Old access road climb to old Canadian (1920's) and American (1960's) fire lookout stations. Nice view from the top, with only the access road as your route back down. Easy riding for reasonably fit individuals. 16km each direction with 849m elevation change.

Located on the U.S./Canadian border, a camp with tree platform was established in the 1920's. A log cupola cabin was constructed in 1930, and later determined it is actually a few feet inside Canada, making it British Columbia's southernmost lookout. In 1953, a 30' treated timber L-4 tower was built on the U.S. side, officially making it the northernmost lookout in Washington. Last used for emergencies in the 1970's, both structures remain intact at the end of a 10 mile trail from the Canadian side or 30 miles of trail from the U.S. side through the Pasayten Wilderness.
