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. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
