Geocache Description:

Red Hill is the location for a lookout tower operated by the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest. The cache is located about 6 tenths of a mile from the lookout and is a fairly easy walk down a two track road for about half the hike and then through some trees and clearings for the last half. The altitude at the lookout is 5000' and the altitude at the cache is 4700'.

The cache is a camouflaged ammo can hidden so muggles will not accidentally find it. To get to Red Hill Lookout from Enterprise, take Oregon state road 3 North. If you are coming from the Lewiston-Clarkston area, take Washington state road 129 out of Asotin and follow this road like you are going to Enterprise, Oregon. Turn East at N45 37.627, W117 15.996, follow Forest Road 46 which will take you to a junction at Crow Creek, turn left and then another left about 1/2 a mile from there. Stay on that road and park at N45 47.286, W117 06.158 which is where the lookout parking is. Once you get to the lookout you will be able to see the Seven Devil Mountains to the Southeast and the Eagle Cap Mountains to the South. This is a fairly remote area, so tell someone where you are going and bring extra water, food and clothing.
