Castle Peak Lookout was described as a California Region 5 Plan 4AR on a 20 foot H-Brace open steel tower.

Thornton's 1986 survey suggests the structure could have been relocated to or from Oat Mountain but no evidence exists.

The removal date is unknown, only the 6 tower piers, confirming an H-Brace structure on site remain.
