Dee Wright Observatory - The Dee Wright Observatory is a stone memorial to the famed architect Dee Wright. It is located in the middle of a massive lava flow and offers panoramic views of the Cascade Mountain Range, as far north as Mt. Hood. A barrier free access trail takes visitors to an interpretive court, offering information on the history of the structure built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corp. At the top of the observatory, a bronze peak finder points to geologic features amidst sweeping lava fields. The half-mile Lava River Interpretive Trail takes visitors on a 30-minute walk on a paved surface through lava flows with spectacular vistas of the surrounding landscape.
