McConnell Lookout is also located in the Selway-Bitteroot Wilderness -- Clearwater National Forest -- and consists of two log structures. The spot was used as a lookout site in 1918 and the one-room 14’x 14’ cabin living quarters was built in a meadow 450 yards northwest of the summit. In 1935 a 6’ x 6’ log cupola was constructed atop McConnell Mountain.
