You can hear the ocean waves crashing on the beach at this fire lookout. This structure was built in the 1940s, a 60 foot Aermotor steel tower with 7 x7 foot metal cab. The tower is still present on the ground. There was also a small, rectangular wooden ground cabin that looks to be gone after the most recent timber harvest. Both were abandoned in 1962.

Although there is road access to the site, you should have permission from the Quinault Tribe. Access roads are signed no trespassing. The lookout area was logged around 2016, and new trees will hide the structure in the future.
