Nestor Peak

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Looking to the summit and summit shed, Nestor Peak (bobcat)


Nestor Peak is an old lookout site; all that remains is a shed, which may have its door open. There is little inside. On a clear day, take in the view north across Penny Ridge to Monte Carlo and then Mount Adams. Also, get a view down the rubbly lookout road to the Columbia River and the Hood River valley. To the south, Mount Hood rears its stark snowy pyramid against the skyline.

This is a prime wildflower destination in June/early July. In late spring, the lookout road is lined with blooming paintbrush, balsamroot, nine-leaf desert parsley, spurred lupine and cryptantha.
