Comments: The stairs, all 41, are in a single steep flight, with no landings. No doubt, OSHA would cite the stairs as dangerous.

Electronics and Enroachments

Are electronic sites enroaching on tower? No
Comments: Limedyke Lookout is one of a dozen staffed lookouts on the Shasta-Trinity N.F., none of which appear to be on the N.H.L.R. Limedyke is the only one of the dozen staffed this year with a volunteer. The lookout's condition is fair. The exterior wood, window putty, and interior floor should be replaced. The interior needs to be re-painted. The summit of Limedyke Mountain is at 4694 feet. The tower's deck is 29 feet above the summit.

Access and Signs

Directions to tower signed? Yes
Comments? The road to Limedyke Lookout is in good condition.
