To Topographical Map

Elliott Knob Lookout is in the George Washington National Forest some 150 miles west of Washington D.C. It is a metal 14x14 live-in cab with catwalk atop a 30 tower built in 1948 to replace an earlier tower built in the 1920s. Once one of many, it is now one of only three lookouts of its type remaining in Virginia and can be reached by road or trail.
