Butler Peak Fire Lookout is located in the San Bernardino Mountains between the town of Green Valley Lake and Big Bear Lake off of Forest Trail 2N13C
Built in 1936 by the CCC at an elevation of 8,535 feet, it is one of three Fire Lookouts on the Mountaintop District of th San Bernardino National Forest. The structure is a 12x12 wooden cab built directly on the rock, Hear are some pics I thought you might enjoy. The first series of pics is on the way up.

It is basically a time capsule that is still being seasonaly manned by USFS volunteer's.. It really is cool. I can't imagine how they got all that stuff up there.

Probably not helicopters in those days. I have some really good websites for lookouts if you're into that. I visit all I can around where I go. Shame so few are manned anymore.
