The Heaven's Peak Fire Lookout in Glacier National Park, Montana, USA, is significant as one of a chain of manned fire lookout posts within the park. The one-story timber-construction with a flat roof was built in 1945. The flat, overhanging roof is anchored to the stone foundation with cables.[2]

The lookout was to be built in 1940 by local contractor Ole Norden as part of a Public Works Administration project. However, Norden was unable to perform the work and it was completed in 1945 under a different contract.[3]
