Newaukum Lookout

Distance: Drive-up or 0.5 miles
Lookout Elevation: 3,791 feet (3,760+ today)
Access: Gravel Roads, rough last half mile
The Newaukum Lookout site is located on an un-named summit, high above Newaukum Lake in an isolated section of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. I used the 1934 photo survey panoramas and the 1937 Forest Service Map to locate the spot. Previous researchers record there was an L-4 cab built in 1934 and destroyed in the 1960's. Today, a road still goes to the summit although it's getting rough and overgrown in places. The 1937 map shows a trail going nearly over the summit on its way to Newaukum Lake.
