Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Ochocos are a relatively small mountain range in Central Oregon that often get overshadowed by the more grand Cascades range to the west.

Not to be overlooked, the area is ?lled with highlights, including an array of gorgeous wild?owers during summer and some interesting man-made history—including a former lookout, an abandoned mine shaft, and a rustic ski shelter to warm winter-sports enthusiasts during the colder months."

"The Lookout Mountain trail traverses large hillsides in the Mill Creek Wilderness, passing an old cabin and plenty of roaming cows on the way to a captivating viewpoint. Pretty as it is, this trail has a way of making even the directionally capable feel somewhat disoriented. It’s hard to keep your bearings along this looping, swerving, winding route." Read more
