Highlight: Steliko Lookout Tower
Steliko Lookout Tower is a short trail with beautiful views. It begins 17 miles south-west of Chelan, Washington in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. After a brief 1,000 foot ascent, you’re met with the Steliko Lookout Tower. The lookout began as a camp in 1925 before the current 10 foot L-4 structure was created in 1947. Between the 1930s and 1960s, there were 13 fire lookouts staffed in the Entiat Ranger District, including Sugarloaf and Tyee. Despite its low elevation, Steliko was a crucial lookout for the forest. Best of all, in 2019 volunteers renovated the lookout so that it could be used as overnight stays by visitors. This trail and lookout offer amazing views of the surrounding canyons and are great for overlanding, unique camping, and anyone wanting to experience part of the history of the forest. This trail is part of the Washington Cascade Overland Route. Visit Overlanding Across Washington for more information, including which trails to take next.
