|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||3710 ft / 1130 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI drove in on the north ridge of Wellington Butte until the road deteriorated and I didn't want to chance getting stuck in the mud and puddles. My GPS said I was only about a mile from the high point, so I was close enough to hike. I hiked the road about a mile, but it skirts the west side of the summit. I picked a place where I could get up the road cut and climbed the steep forested west slope of Wellington Butte. Near the summit ridge, the terrain became a little brushy, but I pushed through to the high point. Great views looking east and south from the high point.
