The road to the summit, located within the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 recommended. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. At the summit, also known as Grassy Point, there was a fire lookout tower. This lookout, built in the 1930's, was last used for emergencies in 1970. The cab collapsed prior to 2009. For your safety, be sure to check the weather forecast before you begin your trip. If there is a thunderstorm in the area, please do not visit a lookout.
