Trail Overview

Looking for the ultimate scenic view to enjoy a picnic and cold beverage? Would also make an epic "big moment" site with unmatched views of 3 Sisters, Broken Top, and most of the valley below. Things to consider before going: 1. Part of this trail passes through private property so be sure to check signage to make sure they are allowing access, generally, the only time they restrict is if there is a high fire risk. 2. You do need a permit for the forestry land, it's only $30 for the year. 3. The trails get tight in some parts, with bush contact likely on full-width SUVs or larger. I ran this trail in a full-size Bronco Badlands, and some spots are unavoidable. Once you are loaded up, make your way to the trailhead!

Difficulty

This is a fairly easy trail for a vehicle with large enough ground clearance(30" tires or larger). If you are trying to do this in a lower vehicle(say stock Subaru), its still possible with some finesse in your driving.

There was a downed tree but we cleared it from the trail other than that it was a fairly easy trail.

Access Description

Start out at a turnoff near the Cloverdale Fire Department. The final ascent up the Butte is sharp shale type rocks so be careful of your sidewalls.
