Peterson Butte Hike 2020

Saturday, April 11, 2020

9:00am - 12:00pm

Cost: Free

This hike is not part of the trail system plan but it is a definite crowd pleaser!  The view can be spectacular…or encased in clammy fog. It’s worth the trip to find out.

Warning:  This is a difficult, steep hike on varied natural terrain. The trail is often wet or muddy and, there is poison oak on the butte.

Several landowners are generous in allowing us to hold this event, so we ask that you stay on the trail and respect their property. See all notes in the sidebar about this hike.

Special notes

*Because this hike is on private property, ALL HIKERS MUST START UP AT 9:00 AM – NO LATE ARRIVALS ALLOWED. Registration is open from 8:15 – 8:55 am.
*Children are welcome.
*Please no dogs for this event.
*Wear appropriate hiking gear. The trail is usually rocky and quite muddy for stretches, and the weather can be quite different at the peak.
*Please consider if you are in adequate physical condition for this hike. The ascent is the equivalent of walking up 40 floors over the course of a mile and a half – and back down.
*At 11 a.m. we will start to shepherd people down from the peak.
*Please respect the land and the privacy of the landowners so we can continue to hold this hike in future years.
