Toole County Highpoint Trip Report

West Butte (6,983 ft)

Date: September 8, 1997
Author: Bob Packard

From Whitlash, I drove the dirt/gravel Strawberry, Miners Coulee and Coal Mine Roads to base of West Butte. Climb involved steep grass, then steep cobble-sized fractured volcanic rocks and wind blown evergreens and grass again at top.

Climb was 2.75 hours, 3 miles, 2,600 feet of elevation gain.
