Bolan Mountain is quite a unique little spot. The small fire lookout is enclosed by glass windows on all sides providing stunning views of the Siskiyou Mountains in Southern Oregon. This is the place to go if you want to relax for an uninterrupted weekend of stunning mountain scenery, good food, good drink, and chilling with close friends and/or family. The road leading up to the lookout is not for every vehicle and requires a little imaginative driving, AWD or 4WD with high clearance is highly recommended. However the lookout is completely worth the scraped fenders and dented side panels if you only own a Prius. Below the lookout is Bolan Lake which has great fishing and is nearly vacant most days. Bolan's location in Southern Oregon also make is an ideal location for a long day trip to the Redwoods and Crescent City for a day of hiking and surfing. Reservations for the lookout start 6 months in advance of your intended arrival date, but you better hop on it fast as these fire lookouts book up almost immediately. More info on the lookout can be found HERE.
