Ascent Trip Report

Nice hike up to a fire lookout. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate for those views that this lookout is famous for.

The first lookout at Kelly Butte on the Snoqualmie National Forest was D-6 12'x12' cupola cabin build in 1926. In 1950 it was replaced by this 1932 14'x14' ground house with catwalk and staffed until the 1980s. Completely restored in 2011 with a new access trail.
