Large ice falls at the base of Eddy Mountain. The tree at the base of the falls provides some size perspective.

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.

There is a lonely lookout tower (one of the few remaining towers that are still in use) on the top of Eddy Mountain. At 6957 feet in elevation it sits 4557 feet above the Clark Fork River (at the bottom of the photo); nearly a mile above it. (If you view the large size version of this photo, you can get an idea of what the lookout itself looks like.)

If the Sears Tower had been built at the river level, and another built on top of it, and still another built on top of that, and if you stood on the very top of all three, you would be almost at eye level with the lookout.
