Woodpecker Observation Deck

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Observation platform, Woodpecker Loop (bobcat)


The observation deck on the Woodpecker Loop Hike has colorful interpretive signs that explain local fauna and flora. The platform is built under a splendid old oak. Take time here to scan the foliage for small birds and, yes, there are several species of woodpecker that haunt these woods. On a nice day, there are expansive views east across the Willamette Valley to the central Cascades, dominated by Mount Jefferson and the Three Sisters.
