Amazing views are worth the scary and laborous hike. The entire way to the butte is on the side of a hill no wider than 4 feet which was not mentioned in any reading up I had done before going. Bring plenty of water.

This was a fantastic trail. I wouldn't call it easy. It was labeled as medium to strenuous at the trail head. We went a little further than the Butte. The views are breathtaking and don't let the area that has a cable keep you from going. It's plenty wide.

I believe this is closer to Logan Pass than essex....Beautiful either way but if your looking for the trail head...Im pretty sure your going to have to take the Going To The Sun Road and perhaps head out on the Highline trail towards granite park.
