Cody Butte Fire Lookout Site
Built in 1931, a writing on the wall inside says the tower finished June 19, 1931 at 11 a.m. At the very summit, still standing is this 45 foot steel Aermotor tower. Below is a frame cabin living quarters that now looks abandoned. It appears the tower has recently been abandoned as well.

Cody Butte has a road to the summit. Most of the road is decent for higher clearance vehicles but the last half mile gets rough and rocky. There is a parking area for cars just a few yards past where the road starts go get bad.
