Webb Mountain Lookout - Eureka

Webb Mtn. Lookout sits at an elevation of 5988 feet. The lookout has been used as an observation point for fighting forest fires for over 40 years. Constructed in 1959, the structure rests on a concrete block basement and encompasses 196 square feet. The roads to the lookout are well maintained and mini-van worthy. The last 1/4 mile is steep, rocky and bumpy and a high clearance vehicle is recommended if you want to park near the lookout. The cabin is equipped with a modern woodstove, one twin size bed frame and 5 mattresses, table, bench and cleaning gear. The building is not wired for electricity and has an outdoor toilet. Water sources are limited in the area and there is no water at the lookout. We recommend bringing your own drinking water, as all open water is considered contaminated. There is a nice firepit located at the base of the lookout, some firewood provided. This lookout has many nice locations to set your lawn chair and enjoy the awe inspiring scenery.

The lookout is open from June 1 to September 30 (weather permitting) and can be reserved 3 days in advance of your stay by contacting the Ranger Station or Contact the National Recreation Reservation Service at 1-877-444-6777 or www.recreation.gov, the cabin can be reserved 180 days in advance of your stay.
