This ranger lookout is situated on a cliff and has a good view of the surrounding area. At its base is a small shed with some junk items on a couple of shelves. The stairs leading up to the top of the tower are booby-trapped. A map in the top of the tower has a knife placed in it near where the Lucky Hole mine is located.
- Note to trespassers - Can be found on a bed at the top of the tower.
- Angry note - To the southeast of the lookout, on a table near a bunk bed.
- Defeated note - To the southeast of the lookout, near a skeleton among the cliff edge.
- Random magazine - To the southeast of the lookout, behind a Radiation King TV monitor to the right of the archery target.
The South Mountain lookout appears only in Fallout 76.
