Constructed by the CCC in 1935, Barfoot Lookout on the Coronado National Forest in Arizona was active for more than 65 years. It was a 14x 14 L-4 ground house with a roof-catch cistern once common in the dry Southwestern forests. This lookout was destroyed in the Horseshoe II fire in June 2011.[5] Only the foundation remains.
