Clark Butte Trail #3456.1

The first 0.5 mile of the lower trail route overlaps with the Clark Creek Nature Trail.  Stay right at the first trail junction and continue climbing past the Fall Creek Tie Trail to reach the Clark Butte Trail. As the trail continues to climb, you will cross Forest Roads 1817-410 and 1817-417.

The trail is named for Clark Butte, elevation 2,400 feet, the trail's highest point. The trail then continues down the ridge to Forest Road 1817.

An old fire watch station was built on the point in earlier times. The view is limited now due to the growing trees, but it still has a sunny spot to enjoy on a winter day.
