Geocache Description:


Byrd Point is the site of a Fire Lookout for the US Forest Service. It is listed as a camp and was manned in the 1930s. The elevation is 3737 feet and the location has an exceptional 360 view of the area, which takes in the Entiat and Chelan Mountains, Chelan Butte, and miles of the Columbia River. If you look across the Columbia river, you can see Desert Canyon Golf Resort on the other side.

To get there drive North on US 97A past Entiat and drive up Oklahoma Gulch to the top. Drive the ridgeline west then south, past a cache called Long Lost Lookout site (another former lookout on Goman Peak), and after 1/2 mile or so, take a left fork. The road after that is no longer car-friendly. The next mile and a half requires a high clearance rig. If you don't have one, then you can walk the old lookout access road for 1-1/2 miles to the cache. If you have a high clearance vehicle, you can drive to within 1/4 mile of the cache.

Since this was a FS camp, very little remains, but if you look closely you can see where they stacked stones as chairs for viewing.

Enjoy!

Map legend: Blue Line is Oklahoma Gulch Road, Red Line is lookout access road (high clearance or hike), black line is 1/4 mile hike to the top from parking coordinates. Other nearby caches also shown.
