Cedar Butte

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Summit area, Cedar Butte (bobcat)


At this former lookout site, there are two benches offering views west over the South Fork Kilchis valley all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Shards of glass from the demolished lookout cabin litter the site. A small meadow, often a bedding ground for elk, tumbles down the slope below the summit.

In 1939, the fire lookout itself, ironically, became a victim of one of the massive fires that devastated the area in the 1930s and 1940s.
