Union Peak Lookout in the Garnet range of western Montana.
Union Peak (6,821 ft.)
in the Garnet Range, Granite County Montana
 
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 seasonally remains in service. In 1973 the Montana Dept. of Natural Resources and Conservation assumed responsibility for the lookout. Union Peak and the surrounding land is now privately owned having been sold by Stimson Timberland Sales however the new owner says that  he is not barring anyone from visiting the peak.
From Missoula, drive about 9 miles east on Interstate 90, take MT-200 E to Garnet Range Rd 30 min (28.6 mi).  At milepost 22, Take Garnet Range Rd. & follow the signs to Union Peak.  Garnet Range Rd. is a seasonal road and not maintained in winter.
