Found it while Geocaching.

Found at the top of East Zigzag Mountain after a great hike from North Burnt Lake Trailhead. We could see Mts. Hood, Jefferson, Adams, Rainier, and St. Helens today. What a great day!

We were up here geocaching and some other hikers came by and asked if we saw the marker. So we went over and looked at it and took a picture. It was a little beat up, but legible.

Found it with the Captain C. He's been here before. Also found the close by Geocache. Fun Hike to this spot.

Great hike to this spot, and a beautiful view upon arrival. Pack a lunch and stay awhile to soak in the view. Benchmark is quite mangled, but is there and easy to find.
