Clara Peak Lookout formerly stood in Espanola Ranger District of the Santa Fe National Forest. Built in 1951, it featured a 14'x14' L-4 ground house constructed of stuccoed cinderblocks. It had metal frame windows with wooden shutters and a wood frame roof. An outhouse, storage shed, and cistern were also constructed at the same time as the lookout.
The tower was removed sometime between 1988 and 2015.
