Squaw Peak Lookout was constructed in 1942. It is an L-4 style cab, and is on the National Historic Site Registry. The lookout is surrounded by glass windows on all sides, providing visitors with an unparalleled view of the steep drop-offs and breath-taking views of the rugged Siskiyou Mountains. This historic lookout is available for rent during the snow-free season. Guests must bring most of their own amenities. Rattlesnakes, ticks, and poison oak are all present in this area. Summers are hot and dry, so bring plenty of drinking water, sunscreen and clothing that provides protection from the sun, as well as garments for cold nights and windy, rainy days. Thunderstorms are common in the summer months, and bring heavy precipitation, as well as high winds and of course, lightning. The lookout has a modern lightning protection system, but care needs to be taken when active cells are approaching the site. Access road is steep and windy and has tight switchbacks which may not be suitable for passenger vehicles or large trucks.
