Ascent Trip Report

What a cool summit! Lots of families on this trail. Road to Butte Lake is easy to drive, 30mph most of way.

Sandy trail through forest for 1.2 miles. Then you reach the cone. We took the large trail directly up. It’s a very steep grade and sandy. Did it with my 9 and 7 year olds, so anyone should be able to get up it. Once you Crest, it is amazing. The views are fantastic and the large crater in the center blows you away (hopefully it actually doesn’t haha). The trail circles the crater and another drops down into it. We went down into the bottom. Such a cool experience even if it is a bit eerie. A very worthy trip to this place. If I didn’t have the family with me, I would have tacked on Prospect Peak.
