Need to Know

The Abbott Butte Lookout (1939) is deteriorating. Do not enter it or climb it!

Description

This trail—which is actually the old service road to the Abbott Butte Lookout—intersects the Rogue-Umpqua Divide Trail #1470 about 2.5 miles from the trailhead at Huckleberry Gap. The old road prism is still very evident, and is easy to follow up to the still-standing lookout. On a clear, day views from this old lookout site are 360 degrees and stunning.
