Ascent Trip ReportThis lookout is inhabited by an actual friendly lookout person. From Hwy 89 about a mile past the upper river campground, turned right onto a dirt road and drove 7 miles to Sardine Valley. Turned left at the junction at Sardine Valley and drove approximately 3.5 miles to Jones Valley where I took a right at a sign saying "Babbitt LO 6 miles". Followed signs to summit and parked at a small turn-around below the lookout. Only 20 foot gain and 100 feet to the rocky highpoint and benchmark.
