There will be one more fork in the road (I forgot to photograph), take that one up to the left to Vetter Mountain.  There is a trail marker at this point and the road is no longer paved.

  1. FYI: Vetter Mountain Fire Lookout is being rebuilt! Five years after the Station Fire destroyed the historic 1935 lookout, volunteers from the Angeles National Forest Fire Lookout Association began pouring a new concrete pad in the original stone foundation on July 12, 2014. The new structure will be built to the original plans to give it a truly historic look. Hopefully, by the end of this fire season, we will have a newly rebuilt fire lookout for our volunteers to use . . . and for hikers to visit!
