There are only three lookouts remaining in Nevada, and two of them are
operated by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Yellow Peak Lookout
oversees the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge in the high desert and timber
islands of northwestern Nevada. Built in 1981, it is a unique 9' x 9'
groundhouse with wooden catwalk on a 2' foundation, and is staffed during
periods of high fire danger.
