The Sugarloaf Lookout is the only fire lookout on the Entiat Ranger District to be staffed throughout the fire season. Plan to make a day of this trip and enjoy a picnic lunch and a panoramic view of the great outdoors. Bear in mind that Sugarloaf Lookout is a working fire watch tower, and at any time you may be asked to leave so watch duties aren’t impaired. Please note that Forest Service roads can be slippery during the rainy seasons or during and right after a rainstorm. Access: From Leavenworth, travel up the Chumstick Valley to Eagle Creek Road. Where the pavement ends on Eagle Creek Road, turn left onto Forest Road No. 7520 which goes to French Corrals. From Ardenvoir in the Entiat Valley, turn left up the Mad River Road to Tillicum Road No. 5800 and then on to French Corrals. Drive north along Forest Road #5200 approximately five miles then turn right along a spur road. If the gate is locked park below it, do not block the gate. From there, enjoy a short walk to the lookout (maps are available from ranger station offices in Entiat and Leavenworth.
