The trail is well maintained and the views are probably great. Probably. I went on this hike during the great 2017 BC Smoke fest. All views of mountains and valleys were shrouded in fog like smoke. The drive to the trailhead is a long slow 12 miles of dusty forest service road. Potholes. After we got to the top we were greeted by all manner of flies. I'm glad I did the hike. From an exercise point of view it was great. Smoke, flies and long potholed road will keep me away in the future.

took our dog up here last summer. beautiful hike but a lot longer then we thought it would be. the view from the top was phenomenal and we had a great panoramic view.

Snow on trail added to the challenge, which began about a mile into the hike. Only came across one group of 2 people the entire hike. Views from the Butte were as good as they get in the N. Cascades.

Not an overly difficult hike until the end. It will challenge your will to finish but the reward is worth it

It's a little rough going towards the top, but the view makes it all worth it. Absolutely spectacular. Don't miss Blue Lake on your way back down.
