East Butte Trail #3112

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

This trail begins at Teepee Trailhead and ends at Twin Buttes Trailhead to the southwest. Junctions with West Butte Trail #3138 and Butte Creek Trail #3107. This trail is maintained for foot and horse traffic only as it lies within the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness

The trail drops steeply off the southwest direction from the Teepee Trailhead on the down ridge side. The first mile of the trail is steep with many switchbacks and large rock outcroppings. The trail then follows along East Fork of Butte Creek, and on to Twin Buttes. Or head up the West Fork of Butte Creek to the Godman area on West Butte Trail #3138.  This trail is lightly used, so it offers seclusion to camping.

Practice Leave-No-Trace camping ethics. Pack all garbage out.
