General info

McGuire Mountain Lookout was originally constructed in 1923 and was actively used as an observation point for detecting forest fires for over 20 years before it was abandoned around 1944. The structure was later renovated between 1983 and 1998 and is now available for rent for up to four people. McGuire Mountain is located approximately 14 miles southwest of Eureka. Access to the lookout requires a 2.5-mile hike from the parking area at Little Sutton Mountain; visitor arrival is dependent on road and weather conditions.

Natural Features: The McGuire Mountain Lookout is located in the Rexford Ranger district within the Koocanusa Area, which is primarily centered along the narrow 90-mile Koocanusa Reservoir, formed by the Libby Dam. The Koocanusa Reservoir is the major recreation attraction in the area and contains a large and stable population of Kokanee salmon, Kamloops (rainbow) trout, bull trout, west slope cutthroat trout, and burbot. The Koocanusa Area is the perfect setting for year-round recreational attractions, including fishing, water sports, rock, and ice climbing, and driving for pleasure, especially during the fall Western Larch color change.
