Sno-Park: Lone Butte
In a mature and varied forest setting interspersed with mountain meadows and geographic features, this park is adjacent to Indian Heaven Wilderness. Here visitors will find access to trails leading to remote forest lakes, high-mountain elevations and some of the most spectacular country found anywhere.
This Sno-Park accesses 154 miles of groomed snowmobile trails outside of the Wilderness area. There are no ski trails at this Sno-Park. Amenities include a shelter with wood stove, a vault toilet and a paved parking lot with capacity for 50 vehicles.
