4 miles of hiking • 1000' elevation gain •
In Sunriver for the weekend with my family. They indulged me with a little hike up this little butte which is a former LO tower location. We just parked along Century Drive and went cross country heading up the hill . Just as the manzanita was getting thick and annoying, we stumbled onto a trail. Easily avoidable patches of snow the whole way up with some persistent drifts on top. Nice basalt bluffs on the SW side. I'm sure the views are great from here, but it was a pretty cloudy day so we just saw a few of the nearest smaller bumps below the cloud deck.
