Traverse the length of Spencer Butte, taking in the views, looking at the flowers, and watching for wildlife all the way. Watch for Roosevelt elk and blacktail deer all along this trail. The old lookout site, of which the only remains are the concrete foundation blocks, is a few feet to the right of the trail. Sitting near the midpoint between Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens, the view from the semi-open summit is tremendous in all directions. You may notice the pumice on the ground; it was part of Mount St. Helens before the May 1980 eruption.
