General Description

The Deer Butte Trail (#3508) is a moderate to easy 7.2 mile hike that skirts the west side boundary of the Mt. Washington Wilderness, connecting to other trails that lead to Scott Mountain and the Benson/Tenas Lakes area. The trail accesses Kuitan and Robinson Lakes, crossing several intermittent streams. Lower elevations and gentle terrain make this a good early season hike when most wilderness trails are still under snow. This trail provides an excellent day ride for stock users when a vehicle shuttle is arranged at Robinson Lake Trailhead. Wilderness visitor permits are required and are available at the trailhead. Trail park Passes are required at all Mt. Washington Wilderness Trailheads.

Directions from Springfield: Continue on Hwy. 126 about four miles to Scott Creek Road, No. 2649. Take Road 2649 about 8 miles to Road 676 (look for hiker symbol). Turn left and drive 1/4 mile to the road end and trailhead.

Seasonal Information:
Normally Open: Late Spring through Early Fall .
