Tiny House Living at 11,486 Feet – Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout

Squaw Mountain Lookout Tower was built in 1925 by the City and County of Denver and is among one of the highest lookout towers in the United States at 11, 486 feet elevation. This remarkable structure, “built of hand-hewn native stone which was carefully mortised,”  represents a time before modern fire detection methods. The cab measures 14 feet by 14 feet and is completely lined by windows on each side and surrounded by a catwalk, all of which sit on top of a one story stone base.” – HistoriCorps

Squaw Mountain is the first fire lookout tower available for rent near the Front Range. The fee is $80 per night plus a $9 reservation fee.” – Rocky Mountain Journal
