This is a nice little hike not too far from town. There are great views from the top as well as along the way up/down. The trail currently has some snow and ice covering a few sections, mostly on the north side of the butte.

There are a few paths up, not just the main trail. But unless you want to go straight up, stick to the trail on AllTrails. Going straight up was fun but a lil icy

Really great views at the top. There’s a few other small trails other than the main trail - they all get you to the top but the main trail is definitely less strenuous.

HikingGreat!No shade

Great hike out in Deschutes Woods to have a 360 view of all the mountains. Typically way less traveled than Pilot or Lava Butte, with a nice meandering trail up to a big open area on top for a picnic or sunset. I prefer doing this trail than any other butte for the solitude. Easy also to distance on the trail for covid purposes, keep in mind no shade in the summer!

People use this hike for a lot of different purposes. I would of enjoyed this experience more if I was mountain biking. For hiking, this is a good calf burner with high elevation. Cool 360 view of Bend. Best experienced at sunrise or sunset.
