Abbott Butte

View west from the Abbott Butte Fire Lookout Tower, Douglas County, Oregon, July 24, 1933 (Sarlin & Birchall).

 

Abbott Butte is located in Section 23, Tsp. 30 S., Rng. 2 E., at 6,131 feet elevation in the Jackson Creek subbasin of the South Umpqua River in Douglas County, Oregon.

The Abbott Butte Area was selected as an "Area of Special Interest" for the 2010 South Umpqua Headwaters Precontact Reference Conditions Study for several reasons, including its cultural and botanical significance and as an important landmark in early historical time (Leiberg 1900: 309-311).

This page includes specific maps and aerial photographs of Abbott Butte, panoramas and QTVR video files constructed from the 2010 field research studies, and individual historical and 2010 documentary photographs showing current condtions, native plants and animals, and other points of interest related to this study area.
