Bald Butte

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Old fence line on the Oak Ridge Trail, Bald Butte (bobcat)

Description

Bald Butte is a grassy prominence and former lookout site at the north end of Surveyors Ridge. Views extend down to the Hood River Valley and Mount Hood; to the north is the Cascade crest in Washington: Mount Saint Helens is fully visible and Mount Adams can be seen behind the Butte.

Vehicles can access Bald Butte via FR 17 and a power line corridor, and ATVs are frequent visitors.

The lookout here was a 40-foot timber tower with a cabin. It was decommissioned in 1972.
