Cinnamon Butte Trailhead

It is 1.5 miles to the Cinnamon Butte Trail junction on your left and another 1.5 miles to the top of the butte (elevation 6417 feet). The 41-foot fire lookout tower was built in 1955 and moved to its present location in 1976 (originally it stood on Buster Butte near Oakridge). It is a treated-timber, flat-roofed style of lookout. On a clear day the view is splendid: Mt. Thielsen to the south, the Sawtooth Ridge to the southeast, Lemolo Lake, and the North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River Canyon to the northwest. Beyond the Cinnamon Butte Trail junction the Wits End Trail proceeds to the southeast at milder grades, from almost flat to about 8 percent. One mile beyond the junction you will come to a viewpoint that provides a look at Cinnamon Butte, Mt Bailey, and the North Umpqua River canyon to the northwest. The next couple of miles are fairly flat, until you reach a large cut-over area. The trail / road picks up again at the northeast corner of the managed stand, continues through a forested area, turns east and enters another large managed forest stand. Ski to the top of the ridge for views of Cinnamon Butte, Mt. Bachelor, and the Three Sisters. The downhill runs on both trails will make your day.
