We wanted something close and quick as it was Easter weekend and we had many things to do before Sunday. Cedar Butte seemed to fit the bill. We tracked it at 4 miles round trip and took us no time at all to get up and down. Easy to find as it is the trail head to the John Wayne Trail. I-90, exit 32, take a right at the end of the ramp and keep driving til you can't anymore. You will need the discovery pass. Have you written on you second license plate number yet? We LOVE that we can share between 2 vehicles now!!!
Okay once you get on the John Wayne trail, the trail head for Cedar Butte is about a mile up just after Boxwood creek on the right. It starts up pretty good. Yes, there are little signs pointing the way. We actually took a left instead of a right as this is a loop. We found going left at the sign was a little more direct and had more elevation, which we love. We want a little workout after all. We did take the blowout loop on the way back. It is a pretty little trail along the way as well. We were the only ones on the trail until our way back. Good trail conditions. Not too muddy. Someone has been up there removing any trees that fell with winters ice storm. (Thank you!!!) Lots of people, lots of dogs. Please leash your dog. That's all we will say about that.
Okay, here's some pics. Please note the newest 4 legged member of the Triple H'ers!
