By the mid-1970s, most lookouts had been abandoned as fire-detection began to rely more on technology and aerial reconnaissance.

Some lookout structures were deconstructed by government agencies worried about liability, some have been left to rot, and some have been restored and are maintained by hikers.

Some of the standing lookouts even have beds and stoves for a first-come, first-serve overnight stay.
