  • Easy
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 4.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 950 ft
  • Pace: 2 mph

Meet near the outhouse at Palouse to Cascades State Park / Cedar Falls Trailhead at 4:00 pm.  Discover Pass required.

Cedar Butte has no grand view from the top, but it's relatively quiet for an I-90 corridor destination, perfect COVID hike for avoiding masses!  It's an easy ~2 miles and <1000 ft to the top and back, so we'll keep a steady pace and be back to the trailhead in +/- 2 hours. 

This is Phase 2 hike.  Please bring a face covering (buff, bandana, mask...) and your personal hand sanitizer with you.
