The view is spectacular, and so is the hike in and then, often, up. Oregon and Washington forests are dotted by 60-foot towers, ground-level guard stations, ranger cabins, warming shelters, and bunkhouses that once housed rangers. Now, with airplane surveillance and other systems the buildings are empty and available to rent by the night. The 65 entries here include a brief description, history, elevation, availability, suitability (for example, for pets or small children), capacity, safety considerations, what to bring, and how to get there. Each entry includes directions on how to make reservations, charges, and amenities.
