Driveway Butte Trail is a 8.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Winthrop, Washington that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from June until October.
Directions from Early Winters: Drive Highway 20 west 5 miles to Klipchuck Campground. Near the self-service fee station there is a gated service road. (Do not park in front of the gate.) The trail begins about 100 yards down this road and is marked by green trees.
Snow free as of Memorial Day weekend. The balsamroot is a week or two past it's prime but still providing a blast of color. It's a bit of an obstacle course through the burn zone because of all the downed trees but the trail is easy to follow. Cloudy at the top so I couldn't see much but I image the view is pretty nice on a clear day.
