“Premier hike on the northern edge of the Wenaha Wilderness to a USFS Fire Lookout.”— Greg Brown
Continue along the trail, over the crest and then down into a saddle. Oregon Butte spring with a log trough sits about 200 yards before the cutoff to the lookout. You'll reach a junction where the Mt. Misery Trail #3113 will go north and the Oregon Butte Lookout Trail will go south. Follow the trail south to reach the lookout.
The fire lookout is staffed from June to September. Delivery of fresh fruit or vegetables is aways appreciated. Views from the lookout are spectacular. Be sure to ask for a guided tour.
