Located on the Idaho/Montana state line, this L-5 log and frame lookout cabin, built in 1928, is one of only 3 remaining examples of its type in the region. Not staffed since the early 1960's, the cabin is listed on the National Historic Lookout Register. Restoration work on the structure began in 2019.
