Josephine Peak Lookout was constructed in 1935, a California Region 5 Plan BC-301 on a short, open timber tower.
Some stories suggest the structure was moved from Mount Lukens but the photos of that lookout suggest an earlier design, Plan 4AR.
The lookout was burned in the 1975 Big Tujunga Fire and not replaced.
The Angeles National Forest Fire Lookout Association is using the site for fire detection in 2019 as the Vetter Mountain Lookout is rebuilt.
