The Blackfoot Forest Protective established Union Peak Lookout as a crow’s nest tree platform in 1930. Five years later it was replaced by a 70’ steel tower. In 1963 the present 15’x15’ groundhouse with slightly sloped gable-flattop roof., a unique BFP design, was constructed and remains in service. In 1973 the Montana Dept. of Natural Resources and Conservation assumed responsibility for the lookout.
