NOTE: The Forest Service Winchester Lookout, maintained by the Mount Baker Club, is shuttered but is still open until November when it is closed and locked. The lookout will no longer be available as a shelter from November to approximately May due to user damage during the winter. We are sorry to have to do this, but vandalism at the shelter during the winter has increased to intolerable levels. If you had planned to use the lookout this winter, travel self-contained and be prepared with your own shelter. Click Here For Additional Information on why the lookout is shuttered during the winter.
