Trail #30 & #30A Spencer Butte & Breezy Point

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

As you ascend Spencer Butte Trail (3.2 miles one way) from the south the forest changes from western white pine to noble and subalpine fir. Breezy Point Trail #30A is soon reached where it provides a 1.2-mile trail to the location of an old fire lookout. The base for a fire finder can still be seen at this location, however a canopy of trees blocks distant vistas. On top of Spencer Butte, the skyline is also mostly hidden by the fully mature canopy of trees. The remains of a Forest Service fire lookout built in 1935 are found on the summit. Wildflowers provide a colorful display in the summer months on the top of the butte. Descending to the north, the trail travels through a Douglas fir forest before ending near Spencer Meadow, a place often visited by elk.
