Larch Mountain (Washington)

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Comm towers at the summit, Larch Mountain (bobcat)


Larch Mountain is the highest point in Clark County, but unfortunately is not the most scenic destination. A couple of communication towers adorn the summit, residing next to a clearcut. Views are limited and are mainly to the west and south between the trees.

The mountain is named after the noble firs that crown its summit. 'Larch' was a lumber trade name for noble fir, larch poles being much prized for their density and straightness.
