Planning to go looking for old lookout sites when we're allowed to go out adventuring again. I am trying to pinpoint the location of the old Hillockburn Lookout. Looking at the 1935 Mt. Hood National Forest map, it looks like there was a Hillockburn Cabin (maybe in the vicinity of the spring?), and the lookout was further south. This site puts it on a peak at 2,379' just beyond the spring and I'm wondering if anyone can verify that.
Here's a trip report from Rob that was a little north of that 2,379' location: https://www.robshikingdiary.com/wp/2012/06/2_4_2012___upper_gipper_trail/
It looks like that area where the lookout was supposed to be didn't get burned during the 36 Pit fire.
I'd be interested to know if you find anything.
