Trail Overview

NF 400 begins as a nice, wide two-track but gradually becomes more and more narrow with vegetation overgrowth. There are sections where pin-striping for wider vehicles would occur. Erosion damage exists in a few places; a couple of which are chewing away at the trail. The East Fork Buttermilk Trailhead is three miles into the trail. Past this point, the trail is more primitive as it climbs up the hillside. Once on top of the butte, the area opens for some amazing 360 views of the surrounding forests and mountain peaks. The area is unmaintained (closed) in the winter and early spring months. No cell service.
