We started this hike at the Diamond Lake trailhead. Didn't quite get to the top of the butte as daylight was leaving us. We actually went 5 miles round trip but the GPS crapped out at about halfway if you look at my track. Pretty much uphill all the way. Not much of a view as the trail is entirely in lush forest. But we didn't get to the top either. A good workout.
