Quick and enjoyable hike that circles around the Butte for nice views of Lake Shastina, the Shasta Valley, and all that surrounds from the top. I’ve only done this hike once, but would like to do it again. Unfortunately, first time I went there was what appeared to be a sketchy lived in van on the trail that spooked me into not wanting to go back. Nice hike for the off season, especially in winter when everything else is buried in snow!
