The Norton Ridge Lookout was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933 and is located within the boundaries of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area.

It is a ground mounted L-4 standard design of the 1930’s and is eligible to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Treasure Valley Back Country Horsemen replaced the roof and did some paint work on the lookout in 2014.
