Dome rock

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

View to Tumble Lake from Dome Rock (bobcat)

Description

Dome Rock is a rounded andesite formation of the Old Cascades in the Willamette National Forest near Detroit. It can be reached via the Dome Rock Trail #3381.

There are the remains of the old lookout here and views down to Tumble Lake, Water Tower Mt., Tumble Rock, and Elephant Rock above the lake, the radio tower on Hall Ridge, north to Sardine Mountain and Mount Hood, into the French Creek valley to the west, Mount Jefferson, and south across Detroit Lake to Coffin Mountain and all the way to Three Fingered Jack, Mount Washington and the Three Sisters. Just to the south, half-hidden by trees, is Needle Rock.

The lookout was built in 1928 and replaced in 1948. The latter structure was destroyed in 1965.
