Lookout Mountain, elevation 6,536 feet (1,992 m), is the second highest peak in Oregon's Mount Hood National Forest and the highest point in Badger Creek Wilderness. It sits about 8 miles (13 km) east-southeast of Mount Hood, separated from it by the valley of the East Fork Hood River.
From its summit and with good visibility, one may see (from approximately west and moving clockwise) Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Broken Top, South Sister, North Sister, Mt. Washington, and Mt. Jefferson with the unassisted eye.
In 1911 a Forest Service lookout was built on the summit and was replaced by an L-4 tower in 1940. The site was abandoned in 1966 and the structure was later removed.
