Mt Ord Lookout.

Post by AK » May 22 2020 12:35 pm

I'm looking to take my two boys, 10 and 12 up to the fire lookout on Mt. Ord this coming week. Do they ever allow visitors up to the tower? I know that with the Covid 19 that it might not be possible though. Thanks!

@AK

You might want to call the forest service to make sure they are allowing foot traffic beyond the gate right now. This past weekend the sign said "area closed".

Thanks for the info! Al least it'll make a great day road trip.

Lookout Tower Rob and his ORD RV retired at EOY.

They put up a fancy webcam to monitor things but it was manned a couple Thursdays ago.

Watcher wasn't interested in any guests from his perch.
