O'Farrell Lookout Traditional Geocache

An ammo can placed near the site of an old forest fire lookout at 3,600 feet.
Want to stand on the edge of the Cascades and gaze out over the Sound end of Puget Sound? The view from this cache includes all that and more? With the clearcut in the area, it's easy to see why a lookout tower was built here in 1934; the view would be wonderful. The lookout tower was removed by 1960 but thanks to the recent logging the view was returned. Since the logging trees are again growing up to block your view of the lowlands. The drive up to the area is on Forest Service roads. The walk to the cache starts at a gate, then follows a logging road up to an overgrown old spur road. Follow it aways and then head a short distance uphill to the cache placed in a classic NW spot (on a stump). May 2019 update: It appears that access is being restricted to this area of the forest. This has added a hike of several miles to reach the cache and parking coordinates have been updated. Still, it's a great and unusual view from the cache location.
