Hemlock Butte Trail #3620


This trail starts in a mature, multi-aged stand of douglas fir, mountain hemlock, noble fir, and pacific silver fir. The climb is a steady grade until the final 0.1 mile, which becomes a scramble up unbroken rock to the summit where a fire lookout was once located. The view from the top gives an opportunity to see much of the west side of the diamond Peak Wilderness. Good views of Diamond Peak, Mt. Yoran and areas to the west are offered from the summit.
