Henline Mountain Lookout Site

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Description

The official Henline Mountain Trail #3352 ends here at the old lookout site. Alaska yellow-cedar, noble fir, Douglas-fir and mountain hemlock hug the steep slopes; chinquapin, hairy manzanita, and common juniper make up the shrubbery here. You can see the ridge line towards Whetstone Mountain and farther east to Mount Beachie and Battle Ax as well as south to Mount Jefferson. Clearcuts dominate to the west and, beyond the Willamette Valley, Marys Peak rises prominently in the Coast Range.

Henline Mountain Lookout was constructed in 1934, probably by the CCC. The lookout was staffed until 1963 and removed in 1967. Henline was the name of an early settler of the area who also had mining interests.
