Colquhuon Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The western Cascades south of Snoqualmie Pass have an incredible collection of old scenic fire lookouts, and this route provides a great experience at the former location of a summit watchtower in a rather secluded pocket of the land near Greenwater. Because the lookout has been abandoned so long, you’ll find only filtered views from the actual summit.
Trees have grown up since the heyday of fire suppression, but hikers will still enjoy grand views from the ridge just to the south of the summit. From this perch, about 100 feet below the old lookout station, the views sweep in Mount Rainier and the expanse of the Norse Peak Wilderness."
