Great trail for mountain biking and hiking, especially in winter when dirt is hard packed. I hiked it with my dogs. Saw one other biker on trail on Tues am, otherwise nice /& quiet. I parked on the south entrance right on Cline Falls Hwy and climbed through the gate (gate was bolted). View from base of the Butte is fantastic but couldn't find the trail to the summit, and ran out of time... next time! Butte trails are not marked at all so Venture at your own risk and make note of where you are. Watch for coyote if you bring dogs. Trails although unmarked are clear and free if debris, semi hard packed to hard packed in areas. Can't wait to bike it next time and will try parking up the road near Juniper Trailhead.
