White Butte hikes usually begin from the Old Farmhouse Trailhead on the VanDaeles' farm. Always make sure to visit the main house to pay the owners for access to the area. Be doubly sure that you close all fence gates that you open while hiking in this area; this is to prevent the cattle from escaping into the surrounding land. This issue is at the heart of why the VanDaeles charge for access, so please respect their wishes while on their property.
The route begins from a small parking area near the "Old Farmhouse." Hike South along the road until you cross through a wire gate. Make sure to close this gate after passing through, as the owners' cattle can escape through if left open. Begin climbing up a moderately steep gully and contour up toward the summit along a climber's trail. You will climb over a low fence and then begin heading WSW toward a point just above 1,035 m (3,400 ft). After reaching this pinnacle, hike along the still faint trail up the final 30 m (~100 ft) to the summit.
The hike is about 1 mile from the "trailhead" to the top of White Butte.
No special gear required.
