Table Rock Fire Lookout

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The Table Rock Fire Lookout, Malheur National Forest (bobcat)
View back to Bullrun Rock and Monument Rock from the Table Rock Lookout (bobcat)


The Table Rock Fire Lookout is staffed from late June/early July until the first snows. You can either make this a walk (about half a mile), beginning at the Table Rock South Trailhead and leaving the lookout road to angle up cross-country after the initial patch of forest, or drive there (0.8 miles).

The lookout was was in danger of being destroyed in the 2016 Rail Fire, but it and the new outhouse were wrapped in aluminum. An old wooden garage and the former outhouse were reduced to ashes. This is an historic 1937 cabin that replaced the original 1920s structure. The lookout staffperson is used to receiving curious guests, but make sure your visit is between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
