Stag Point

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Remains of the antenna on Stag Point, Criterion Tract (bobcat)
View to the Deschutes from below Stag Point, Criterion Tract (bobcat)

Description

This grassy mound is a marked triangulation station on topographical maps. At one time, it also hosted an antenna mounted on a pole; the remains of this structure are still there, as is the cable that leads down to the Deschutes River. The rimrock crags below Stag Point offer an interesting array of rock formations and views down to down to Frieda Point on the Deschutes, the old mining community of Dant, and the Lady Frances Mine high above the mouth of Eagle Creek. Scrubby junipers and windswept mountain mahogany trees obtain tenuous footholds on the rough rock.

There is a second grassy mound just to the west of Stag Point.
