The University of Montana Department of Physics and Astronomy maintains an observatory at the peak.

Notable features on Blue Mountain are a system of nature trails and old logging roads that cut across large portions of the mountain, an abandoned apple orchard, and the remains of some old, small, gravel pits on the back side that are part of the Blue Mountain Recreation Area

Mule deer, coyotes, black bear, grouse, wild turkeys and other wild animals can be found without much effort across the entire mountain. The black bears are typically found foraging for apples in the abandoned orchard in the fall getting fat for the winter.
