Butler Peak Fire Lookout

Tower10

The road to the Butler Peak Fire Lookout (north of Big Bear Lake) reopened to the public in July 2016 after being closed for 9 years.  Sitting at 8,535 feet atop a tangle of rocks, the lookout offers a commanding 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains.  Fire Lookout Host volunteers James and Mark gave us a great overview of its history and function.  Check with the Big Bear Discovery Center to make sure it’s open before you go.
