From Fort Spokane, drive north on Highway 25 several miles to a left turn on Miller Mountain Road. Follow the main road and use the map for a key turn at a Y intersection. The upper half of the road is beyond houses and hints of private property but access is probably allowed by old easements. Ruts have formed in places, conditions will vary month to month. Many places to park if you can't drive all the way.
At the parking area on the top, there is a new communication structure. A short walk to the south goes to higher ground where you will find the foundation of the fire lookout. Other footings are found next to the parking area but don't appear similar to any lookout foundations I've seen before. Likely a former communication structure.
Sign off Highway 25
