How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:



To claim a find and log this cache you must have a minimum of 15 cache finds from forest fire lookout locations within the Mt. Hood lookout region. You must create a public list of all those finds and bookmark it to this cache page. We have created a list of the approved Mt. Hood Region Fire Lookouts.

The cache final is at the posted coordinates and is placed near the 50 ft. Si-Si Butte lookout tower. Si-Si Butte stands a little over 5600 ft. in elevation. Those who visit the lookout will find much to explore including an old heli-pad with old tools and equipment strewn about.

Be aware that the lookout is staffed during the summer months. Please be respectful of the grounds and be discrete when retrieving the cache.

* We would like to note that the purpose of this cache is not to interfere with the Oregon Forest Fire Lookout Challenge (GC15CVW). Our hope is that it will serve as a starting platform that will inspire others to complete that challenge as well.
