Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Harold Engles was a Forest Service Ranger who first joined in 1919, and ended up staying in the Darrington district until 1958. He is responsible for building the lookout on the summit of nearby Three Fingers. There is also a grove of trees named after him; the Harold Engles Memorial Grove Trail 642 loops along the flats near the North Fork Sauk River through a grove of giant cedar trees in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The grove is named in honor of Engles because he refused to include this grove in a planned timber sale.
