“Great singletrack descending from the peak of Lookout Mountain to the Ochoco Creek Campground.”— Brendan Flynn
The upper section is very rocky and steep, then slowly transitions to a smoother trail below the tree-line. Multiple short climbs spice things up and give your knees a rest.
Hiking from bottom to top is fairly tough due to steep grades, but can be done. Take this route to make your hike an out-and-back to Lookout Mountain's summit.
