Monjeau Lookout – Lincoln National Forest NM

Description

Monjeau Lookout is located in the Lincoln National Forest near Alto, New Mexico.

The lookout “is a famous landmark on the Smokey Bear Ranger District built originally in 1936 and then reconstructed in 1940 as part of a Civilian Conservation Corps project.  This site is a wonderful and adventurous place to visit.  Roads leading up to the site are dirt and can be steep in places.  Visit during the summer months as the road leading to it closes during the winter with the advent of snow.  Monjeau Lookout is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).”   (nps.gov)
