Park Butte Superhighway! Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2013
With a lot of fresh snow on the trail and peak, and with so-so weather forecasts, I left pre-dawn from the TH and arrived at the lookout shortly after 8:00 AM. To my surprise, five people (plus one dog) had spent the night in there... two pals, one couple, and one dog owner... and not all the same group. This should have been a hint to me as to how popular this destination is. Sure enough, I easily passed 50-60 people during my descent, including EastKing, making this the most popular day-hike I have been on in about 4-5 years! I can only imagine how popular this trail system is during Summer. Highly recommended.
