Developed in 1927 with a 35' pole platform tower on the south summit and a crow's nest tree platform on the north summit, a log cabin was built at the south summit and a pole platform tower on the north summit in 1929. About 1933 a 30' L-4 was constructed on the south summit. The present 10' treated timber tower with R-6 flat cab, built on the south summit in 1964, is on the National Historic Lookout Register. The site borders the Salmo-Priest Wilderness.
