  • A beautiful walk around Thumb Butte, with only one minus a walk back along the not so busy road.
    The trail starts at a sign, Butte Creek Trail. Short after the start go right, (look for a box with a biking map).
    Follow the trail trough a golf course. At point [C] trail 321 starts.
    The next crossing [D] follow the 321, at the next crossing [E] keep on the 321 (left) (southwesterly).
    On the next crossing [G] go right on the 327 (west) follow this forest road on the next crossing [H,I] go right on the 322. (all roads loading north are ok)
    Head north on the 322 until reaching crossing [J], now follow the 326 north.
    Keep following the 326 until reaching the main road.
    Take this road (Thumb Butte Road) to the right (east) all the way back to the start of the trail (Take Sherwood Drive).
