Battalion 1

Butte Unit - Battalion 1 Map



Sawmill Peak and Bald Mountain Lookouts are both located in Battalion One north of the Town of Paradise. Sawmill Peak sits on the edge of the canyon that overlooks the North Fork of the Feather River. Bald Mountain sits even further north and is able to see up into the Lassen National Forest, Plumas National Forest and into the Butte and Tehama-Glenn CAL FIRE Units. Both Sawmill Peak and Bald Mountain Lookouts are no longer staffed with fire lookout personnel. Each of the lookouts has been outfitted with two Wildfire Alert cameras, giving 24/7, 360-degree coverage of their areas. Visit the lookout pages to see the views from the cameras on these historic lookouts.
