Puffer Butte Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Puffer Butte sits at the eastern edge of the Blue Mountains, teetering high above the sweltering Grande Ronde Valley. With its lofty elevation above 4000 feet, the butte is cloaked with cool pine, larch, and Douglas-fir forest. The butte’s namesake was a family—the Puffers—who frequently drove their cattle to the top of this butte when they observed Nez Perce peoples travel through the canyon below. The Nez Perce were forcibly removed from southeast Washington—once part of their traditional lands—in the 1870s."
