The Ohop Benchmark was once the site of a lookout tower. Today, the excellent views are still there and it makes for an incredible destination. The only issue might be the ownership. I think the tree farm was purchased by Hancock Timber and it is now in their Eatonville Forest, where a permit is required. I can't find my pictures for this one but the summit has grand views. I was up there late one evening after classes while attending UW Pack Forest. I'm sure I had a camera on the trip.

Route shown on the map is via roads and avoids any bushwhacking. The Nicholson Horse Trail System is another option but requires a long but interesting hike up from the Sahara Creek Horse Camp.
