Fire Lookout Tower to Reopen After 20 Years

October 01, 2003|From Times Staff Reports

A fire lookout tower located above Pyramid Lake in northern Los Angeles County, closed for more than 20 years, will be reopened Saturday.

Volunteers from the Angeles National Forest Fire Lookout Assn. will staff the Slide Mountain Lookout tower, watching for forest fires. Pyramid Lake is about 17 miles north of Santa Clarita.

To commemorate the reopening, a ceremony will be held at noon Saturday at the Vaquero Day Use Area, just below the Vista del Lago Visitor Center on the shores of Pyramid Lake, off the Golden State Freeway. At the same time, a group of hikers plans to raise a flag at the tower.
