Caliente Mountain

Caliente Mountain Today
Caliente Mountain 1988

At 5,106 feet, Caliente Mountain is the highest point in San Luis Obispo County and is on BLM land.  Because of its proximity to oil fields, an Aircraft Warning System observation station was built on the peak during World War II.  As of this writing, we have found no information indicating it was ever used for fire detection.  The structure is now collapsed.
