Lemmon Rock Lookout As Seen From The Wilderness Rocks Trail   Leave a comment

Last year on this date I posted images of the Lemmon Rock Lookout taken from the Wilderness Rocks Trail. This Friday I will be leading the annual SCVN hike on this trail. One of my favorite trails on Mount Lemmon. The hike takes the Marshall Gulch Trail up tp Marshall Saddle where we the follow the Wilderness Rocks Trail. There is a forecast for rain, which we badly need. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

Looking up from the WIlderness Rocks Tail, the Lemmon Rock Lookout on Mt. Lemmon is barely visible through the trees.

Lemmon Rock Lookout is at 8,820 feet and is usually occupied about five months per year for going on 80 years. The 14-by-14 shack was built by a CCC crew in the early 1930s, replacing an older lookout on Mount Lemmon that had stood since 1913. It has been upgraded since then, but remains much the same as it was 80 years ago. Click here for a blog link that contains images of the current accommodations.
