While the exact location of this long since demolished tower is uncertain, Barb Zinn pinpointed the topo map location, based on her knowledge of the area and information gleaned from others familiar with the old tower.

The document, Administering the National Forests of Colorado: An Assessment of the Architectural and Cultural Significance of Historical Administrative Properties in Table 5, indicates that the tower was "Possibly constructed by CCC F-53-C Lone Dome."
