Geocache Description:

Here is another great Lookout cache placed to assist with “Oregon Forest Lookout Challenge"

The Fox Butte Lookout is an 80' steel Aermotor tower, built in 1933, also had cabin living quarters. An L-4 ground house was moved to the summit from Sixteen Butte in 1948. Although the lookout is on emergency standby status, it was staffed full-time during the reconstruction of East Butte Lookout in 1995. The tower is on the National Historic Lookout Register it is located in the Deschutes National Forest 33 miles ESE of LaPine in Lake County, Oregon Elevation 6025'
The last 3/4 mile up to the lookout is gated. Believe the signs when they say “locked gate” with no turnarounds. If you do drive up to the locked gate be prepared to back down a nasty side hill road for almost ½ mile. It is much wiser to stop at the warning sign and hike up the last 1.25 miles…you have been warned!
The cache is located just below one of the buildings adjacent to the lookout.
