First view of "Pa Butte" from the hike in along the road.
This was plan B, when Plan A had too many hunters. Turned out much better than Plan A would have. We drove to the Wedge Mountain parking area then continued along the forestry road past the camp. Stopped when the road took a steep turn as it was super icy, and continued on foot.
We got the idea for this foothill from Dave McMurry
. If you've already done Ma Butte and Wedge Mountain it makes another good outing in the area during shoulder season.
