Frog Lake Buttes

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The best view of Mt. Hood from the actual summit (bobcat)


The twin humps of the Frog Lake Buttes lie at the southern end of the Barlow Ridge. Small lakes of glacial origin lie nestled at the base of the slopes: Frog Lake to the west; Green Lake and Catalpa Lake to the east; and Lower Twin Lake and Upper Twin Lake to the north.

The southern butte can be reached by road as well as the Frog Lake Buttes Trail #484. It now sports a cell-phone tower at the sight of what was once a tall steel tower lookout. The best view of Mount Hood is from a little north of the summit. The higher northern butte is forest covered and offers no views.
