You can reserve the Lookout All Year! Only $50 a night! But it’s sooo hard to get a reservation. If there’s snow you have to hike up with all your gear on Eightmile Trail. If there’s no snow you get a key to open the gate to drive right up to the place!
Fivemile Butte Lookout is located in Oregon
From Dufur, Oregon, travel west on Valley Road for about 18 miles to the junction of Forest Service Roads 44 and 4430, at Billy Bob Sno-Park (the road may be plowed to the Sno-Park). Turn right on Forest Service Road 4430-120, then turn left and follow to the spur road 122. There is a gate that you will have to unlock (in winter months the gate is left open), then follow the 122 road to the end. The route is approximately 3 miles and is marked with orange and blue diamond shaped blazers. This route is not plowed, signed or patrolled. Forest Service Roads 44 and 4430 are closed from the junction of Forest Service Roads 44/4430 to Highway 35, from Dec. 15 through March 15, prohibiting motorized vehicles over 48 inches wide without a permit. During this time, visitors should park at Billy Bob Sno-Park and hike 3 miles to the lookout. A Northwest Forest Pass is required park at the Sno-Park. Maps are available online or for purchase by calling the Barlow Ranger District.
