Every Lookout in Oregon

Little Cowhorn Mountain

Type: R-6 ground cabin
Status: Abandoned
Elevation: 4,244 feet
Visited: July 6, 2013

My first lookout visit of 2013! The hike up to Little Cowhorn Mountain is a short one, just one mile each way. There aren’t any views along the way, but the views at the top are great! However, the view of the Three Sisters is scarred by numerous clearcuts. 🙁

Diamond Peak lays to the south.

The lookout is in pretty good shape. It is unlocked and available on a first-come first-served basis.

A nine-year-old notice inside the lookout gave a little background about the restoration efforts that took place here in 2004. I wonder if they’re still considering adding it to the rental program.
