Ascent Trip ReportDrake Butte is a drive up on a good road. I accessed it from Prineville taking Hwy 380 southeast to near MP 30 and FR 17 signed for Antelope Reservoir. I zeroed my odometer at this turn off and headed south on FR 17. At 6.7 miles I stayed straight, at 8.8 miles at a small pass I turned left onto FR 1750, and at 10.4 miles at another small saddle I turned left onto an unsigned road that leads to the summit. This last road is a little steep and rocky, but it is only about .1 long before I drove right onto the summit next to a small radio relay station. There was about 1" of snow on the ground for the last couple of miles and there was no view from the summit because of trees.
