Access and Route, Class 1

To reach the lookout take the Warren Wagon Road north from McCall to its junction with the Burgdorf Road, FS-246 and zero out your odometer. Continue west on the Warren Wagon Road for 2.7 miles and turn north onto FS-325. Be warned that while this road is shown as an improved road on the Payette National Forest map (there are bridges along the way), the farther you go, the worse the road becomes. It is no longer an improved road. A 4WD with AT tires is recommended. Follow FS-325 for 5.9 miles to a junction with FS-331. Turn onto this road and follow it for 1.1 miles to a junction with the 4WD road that quickly climbs to the lookout.

The fire lookout is one of three manned lookouts in the northwest corner of the Salmon River Mountains.
