NHLR listing for US#087 VA#02, Elliott Knob Lookout
To Virginia list

Elliott Knob Lookout
George Washington National Forest, Virginia

Elliott Knob Lookout is in the George Washington National Forest some 150 miles west of Washington D.C. It is a metal 14'x14' live-in cab with catwalk atop a 40' tower built in 1948 to replace an earlier tower built in the 1920s. Once one of many, it is now one of only three lookouts of its type remaining in Virginia and is unusual in that it is reached only by trail.
