Squaw Peak Fire Lookout


Squaw Peak Lookout is located a few miles across the Montana Line at an elevation of 6167'.  In 1907 the first forest lookout on the old Cabinet National Forest (and the State of Montana) camped in a tent just below the summit of Squaw Peak. Three years later in 1910, the stone cabin was built just below the summit by Noxon's first ranger, Granville "Granny" Gordon and his wife Pauline and still stands. Then in 1930 a gable-roofed L-4 cab was built on the summit.  The present L-4 "Extended Rafter" Lookout (The same model as the old Schafer Peak Lookout) on a stone base was built around 1956 and is available for emergencies.  This peak was renamed "Star Mountain" in 2004 by the Political Correctness Police...
