Description

Butler Fork is a well-marked and maintained trail that provides visitors with many options. You'll have the choice to branch out to Dog Lake or connect to the Mill A Basin Trail towards a higher viewpoint.

Portions of this trail are used in the winter for backcountry skiing. Views abound across the Mt. Olympus Wilderness Area, Mt. Raymond, Gobblers Knob, and Solitude Ski Area.

Roadside parking is available for about 10-12 cars. There are no trailhead restrooms or other facilities, so plan ahead!

To Circle All Peak. Lot of wildflowers, good air quality, still a bit of snow in the direction of Kessler Peak.

BEAUTIFUL colors to see in the fall time. Beginning is the steepest of the trail, but the trail is a moderate incline the whole way. We loved it. 2mi — 1h 58m
