Blue Ridge was an early day cooperative lookout between the Forest Service and CDF. The steel tower was manufactured by Airmotor Company, is 60 feet tall and was constructed in 1930. Sitting on top is a 7x7 foot observation only cab. A separate residence was built below the tower in 1930 with a garage added in 1931.

This lookout is currently not being utilized and is closed to the public.

-didn't realize it was closed. take care if climbing it -rotten wood, strong steel. good view apparently. windy .lots of vandalism, broken glass, just random destruction. sad that people are so bored that they find pleasure in ruining historical structures
