Here’s a stiff climb to an old lookout site providing splendid viewing up deep, glacially cut valleys ringed by glacially carved summits. Enjoy an eagle’s perspective of the West Fork Methow River, Early Winters Creek, Rattlesnake Creek, Robinson Creek, and Lost River valleys, pretty portals to rugged peaks and the Pasayten Wilderness. Melting out early, Driveway Butte makes a good spring high-country probe—great, too, for enjoying blooms. In May and June half the way bursts with showy yellow arrowleaf balsamroot.
