Description

This trail offers a good view as you climb to its highest point of 5,120'. One can access the Copple Butte Trail No. 3052 and head west for about 1 mile to reach Madison Butte and the Madison Butte Lookout. After reaching the Copple Butte Trail, you can turn east to hook up with the Alder Creek Trail No. 3051. This makes for a good loop back to the bottom.

Since there is not a trailhead, a topographical map of the district comes in very handy for locating the beginning of the trail. This trail is open for hiking and horseback riding.
