Historic Elk Lake Guard Station lies along the beautiful and popular Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway. It was originally built in 1929, and was afterward in regular use for almost seven decades. In the late 1990s the log cabin was “de-commissioned” as a full-time Forest Service guard station. But, it re-opened its doors as a Forest Service visitor’s center and interpreted historic site in 2001 and, since that time, PIT volunteers have been recruited and trained to serve as professional-caliber information and interpretation specialists for the site’s thousands of annual visitors. Continuing that tradition, we need your help as uniformed Forest Service representatives again; we hope to see you this summer!
