Leave I-5 south of Dunsmuir at the Soda Creek exit, cross the railroad tracks and Sacramento River, and turn right on Riverside Rd for 0.8 mile to FSR 38N23. where there is a Girard Ridge sign. Turn left for 0.6 mile on FSR 39N13 to a locked gate. It is a pleasant stroll of less than 1/2 mile from here to the L.O. No longer in use, it was staffed regularly from 1931-1981. It was restored to its original condition in 1997 and is available for rent @ $35/night. Good views of Mt. Shasta and particularly of the commanding Castle Crags.
