To Topographical Map

Located on the crest of the Cascade Mountains in the heart of the Wilderness Area of the same name, Bull of the Woods Lookout is a special place. One of a handful of lockouts remaining of the many that once dotted the Mt. Hood National Forest, it is today used occasionally as a backcountry guard station. The first lookout on this site in the 1920s -- was a small pole and shake cabin. The current classic L-4 cab with catwalk on a 10 treated timber tower was built in 1942. The tower frame was prefabed at the Zibzag CCC camp. The cab itself was a precut kit provided by the Alladin Co. The structure is historically intact and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
