Little Cowhorn Mountain Hike

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Little Cowhorn Mountain Lookout (Cheryl Hill)
View of Three Sisters from the lookout (Cheryl Hill)

As of June 2020 this trail is closed due to the 2017 Jones Fire


Hike Description

This short hike takes you to the summit of Little Cowhorn Mountain where you can explore an old fire lookout and enjoy expansive views.

From the trailhead follow the trail steeply approximately one mile to the summit. The old 1960 fire lookout still stands. It is no longer staffed and it's fate is uncertain. The views from here are spectacular. On a clear day you can see the tip of Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack, Mt. Washington, the Three Sisters, Broken Top, and Diamond Peak.
