The trail up Black Butte is 5.2-ish miles (roundtrip) with an elevation gain of about 2000 feet. It’s rocky, but nicely graded. From the top, you’ll have incredible views: Mount Shasta to east, Castle Crags to the south and Mount Eddy to the west. You can also see a snowy Cascade up in Oregon, 70 miles to the north. Access to the trailhead is along a gravel road. It may be snowbound in the winter.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
