On August 26,1997, a group of lookout enthusiasts gathered at Red Top Lookout on the Wentachee National Forest in Washington to dedicate the lookout on the NATIONAL HISTORIC LOOKOUT REGISTER. The event capped a two-year restoration effort by the Friends of Red Top Mountain and the Cle Elum Ranger District. The L-4 wooden cab with catwalk on a 10 timber tower had been battered by 45 years of weather and was beginning to show it. It replaced a D-6 cupola ground house built in 1928. The lookout is now back in active service both for fire detection and a public information site for the 350 million year-old jasper geodes which are found nearby.
