Jordan Peak Lookout was built in 1934 and is still operated by paid staff during the fire season. At 9115 feet, it has the distinction of being one of the highest lookouts in California. It also affords one of the most dramatic 360-degree views the region has to offer. Near the summit grows a cluster of beautiful fawn lilies. The wildflowers, quite rare in these parts, can provide a stunning display in early spring.
