The first lookout structure here was a crow's nest tree platform, built in 1921, and still there 1/8 mile south of the present lookout. In 1934, a 40' pole L-4 tower was built on the middle of 3 summits. This was apparently destroyed in 1974. In 1984, the present steel tower was moved from Johnson Peak near Whitefish. The lookout has been staffed in recent years.
