Skookum Butte Lookout Professional Review and Guide

"The Skookum Butte National Recreation Trail (304) is one of the more interesting day hikes in the heavily logged Elk Meadows area.

A modified L-5 lookout still stands atop its natural summit fortifications, which require only 45 minutes to reach via the route described below. The mountaintop scene shows off a variety of high peaks, including some of the Bitterroots’ lower and lesser known summits."
