Eddy Mountain Lookout

This lookout sits at the very top of Eddy Mountain in the Coeur d’Alene Mountains and overlooks the Clark Fork Valley on one side and the Cherry Peak roadless area on the other. The present lookout tower was built in 1982 and is still being manned in the summer. There is a road to it, but it is gated off so the last 3/4 mile is foot travel for visitors. The first lookout cabin was built there in 1931.

There is a trail that extends from the road southeast along the ridge toward Cherry Peak in the Cherry Peak roadless area. The last two photos were taken from a couple of miles down that trail.
