Event description

Description

Clamber to the top of an old military lookout via an easy cross-country ramble and a very short section of technical rock scrambling. Once on top, there will be a short discussion on the history of this long-forgotten, and little known World War II artifact. As well, the views down into the Pinto Basin to the east and back to the west of Queen Valley and its surrounding peaks are especially memorable from this high, but infrequently visited mesa-like feature situated near the Jumbo Rocks Campground. Roundtrip distance is 2.6 miles with a total elevation gain of 200 feet. Please note: some technical rock scrambling will be required to reach the location where the old lookout once stood.
