October 1936: "The dear old Lost Lake Lookout, which is situated in the northwest corner of the primitive area, and in Packwood District of the Columbia National Forest may be lost but not forgotten. It welcomed 62 visitors this season, and their visits were much appreciated by the lookout fireman. Yes, you may think 'Lost', when you see a sign pointing up a steep zigzag path, saying, 'Lost Lake Lookout 11 1/2 miles.' But, nevertheless, the beauty and grandeur of the scenery make the hike worth while. One young man from Tacoma has been to the lookout every season for eight years, and this year he said that he was fortunate enough to make the trip twice," (Six Twenty-Six)
