McCarthy Point Lookout, Lassen National Park, California
Built in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps., the lookout was originally used as an air defense monitoring system during World War II. The Lookout is comfortably nestled at 3,600 feet in a grove of evergreens and the stunning cabin has a panoramic view of nearby Mill Creek Canyon and the Ishi Wilderness. The area surrounding the hut is a state game refuge and great for hiking and trail running. To get to the lookout you’ll want a high-clearance vehicle, preferably with four-wheel drive. It’s a short hike along a paved trail to the lookout. The cost to stay is $75 per night.
