This peak is not in the book.


Meadow Creek Lookout is a remote peak. However, it is reached by a road because it is the location of a mothballed Forest Service fire lookout dating from the 1930s. The summit is approximately 8 miles southeast of Yellow Pine, but you will have to follow a circuitous route of nearly 25 miles to reach the lookout. USGS Chilcoot Peak
