High Glade Lookout

The High Glade Fire Lookout Tower, in the Mendocino National Forest. This is a great tower to visit during the day.  It is staffed 7 days a week during the fire season.
High Glade Lookout is in good condition. It is operated by Cal Fire and may be staffed as needed with “Seasonal Volunteers”.  Photo by Fred Johnson September 4, 2005.
