General. Fire lookout.
Directions: From Emmett, head north of Hwy. 52, staying
northbound on Van Dussen Road from a 4-way
intersection where Hwy. 52 heads east. At about 5 miles, turn right (east) on Butte Road. Road is gravel the rest of the way to the summit. At about a mile, you'll turn left (north) and skirt around the west side of the butte, then head up a washboarded ravine, eventually topping out in a saddle. There are two summits that can be reached from here, both approximately the same elevation about 1/2 mile apart.
The more southerly summit is home to a BLM fire lookout station that is staffed in the summer. Both
summits are antenna and repeater-laden.
