List Description

This list is an attempt to show all summits in the state of Washington that currently have a fire lookout. This kind of list can get a little murky, since some of them are barely standing, but for now the goal is to be as comprehensive as possible.

At one point there were as many as 750 fire lookouts in the state.


Thanks to Eric Noel for researching this list and putting it all together.
