Dans Creek Fire Lookout was built in 1940 and was located on the northwest slope of Gold Hill East of Darrington,  The lookout was situated on upstream of Dans Creek on along the eastern bench at an elevation of 1,940 feet.  This lower elevation lookout was able to see clearly under cloud cover to the mountains and valley to the north.  The cabin was "manned" part time and worked in conjunction with the Gold hill Ranger Station located on Sauk Prairie to the west.  The cabin was reported as still standing in the 1980's.  Ruins or cabin could not be located in 2011.
