Fivemile Butte Lookout

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Fivemile Butte Lookout (bobcat)



This lookout tower can be reached by car, but also lies just off the Eightmile Creek Loop Trail. A lookout was first erected here in 1934, with the current version being constructed in 1956. You cannot go inside as the lookout is rented throughout the year, but there is a picnic table at its base and there are sweeping views to the Washington summits from this part of the ridge.
