Pony Peak was a very early site for fire detection in the Klamath National Forest. A phone line was run to the peak by 1912.
The first and only structure was not built until 1934, a California Region 5 Plan BC-302 cabin on 6 foot enclosed timber tower.
Pony Peak was staffed annually through 1940 and again from 1955-60 and then used intermittently until 1970.
Removal date is unknown, only the foundation remains at the site.
