The Mount Brown Lookout Trail is one of the steepest trails in Glacier National Park. The trail can be reached via the Gunsight Pass Trail and the Sperry Chalet Trailhead. The trail climbs to a lookout tower which is located on a false summit along a ridgeline, about one mile south of the actual Mount Brown. There is a log book located on the lookout's balcony for visitors to sign in, however, at the time this description was wrote, the tower was not manned and locked to the public. The trail to the lookout is in excellent shape and easy to follow.
