Park Butte Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Built in 1933 and used for fire surveillance until the early 1960s, the Park Butte Lookout is not only maintained and open to the public but also available for camping on a first-come, first-served basis.

With the icy south flank of Mount Baker just 2 air miles away to the north and the rust-colored Twin Sisters Range just 4 miles to the west, this truly is a room with a view, as well as just a neat hiking destination. (Interestingly, in the mid-1970s when there was fear of a Mount Baker eruption, the lookout became an observatory for volcano monitors.)"
