You can easily see Calico Mountains to the north, Big Bear Lake to the east, Riverside and Orange County to the south, and Lake Arrowhead and Mountain High to the west. To try and describe the beauty of the view is impossible, thus make plans and enjoy the stunning scenic views of Butler Peak Fire Tower.
