Butte Trail is a 3.7 mile quiet and nice trail with 900' elevation gain located in Snoqualmie Pass corridor, Washington. The trail isn’t heavily-trafficked so it’s good for both experienced and beginning hikers. It’s a great hiking destination for families with kids. You can take your dogs with you but they must be kept on a leash.

Our team hiked on a clear sunny day so it made our trip more beautiful and pleasant. You can enjoy solitude while you hike through exciting sun-lit woods, listen to soothing nature sounds, breathe fresh air and soak up peaceful atmosphere of the trail.

Cedar Butte is truly gorgeous viewpoint. It’s perfect for hiking, trail running or walking, short nature trips. The trail is accessible all year-round and it’s not very busy. The paths through the woods are meandering. So we recommend you bringing good hiking shoes. Definitely, it’s worth hiking to the summit.
