Columbia County High Point Trip Report

USGS Oregon Butte. DeLorme: p42/D3. S4-T7N-41E.

This is the "highest peak in SE Washington" and the Washington Blue Mountains. The summits here are simply bumps on high ridges. It's the grand-canyon valleys that drop from the ridges that make this part of the state noteworthy. Drive SE out of Dayton, to Eckler Mtn Road to FS Road 46 to Godman Campground, then east to the end of FS Road 4608. A 3-mile trail-hike accesses the summit, which sports a little red lookout house.
