Site of a former lookout Byrd Point is one of four high points beginning about a mile south of Oklahoma Gulch. From south to north, Point 3641’ Point 3660, Point 3755’ and Point 3625’ all offer views down to the Columbia River and out to sweeping views of the Entiat Valley and beyond. Many loop trips are possible from starting points along Highway 97A and Oklahoma Gulch. The short and sweet tour (five miles roundtrip) begins near the headwaters of Osborn Gulch and runs the ridge line north to catch all four high points. Our travel equipment of Subarus reached a parking spot just north of Point 3088’. It’s possible for high clearance vehicles to drive farther north along this road system. Our hike was about five miles roundtrip, hiking over all the high points, then using trails and roads to traverse below the high points on the return. Driving access was via Entiat River Road, Crum Canyon, Byrd Canyon, and Osborn Canyon, using USGS 7.5 Ardenvoir map to navigate.
