Lunch Peak was first built and manned in 1937 when a 45′ Pole L-4 tower was built.
In 1971 a concrete 2 story flat cabin tower was built and staffed.
Summer fire season 2021 the Trestle Creek fire – the tower was wrapped due to overwhelming concern from local citizens. A great local news article about that event: https://bonnercountydailybee.com/news/2021/jul/20/crew-ensures-lunch-peak-lookout-protected-nearby-f/
This Lookout tower is currently on a “first come/first serve” status – however the door is locked and the combination must be retrieved from the forest service prior to your visit.
