Barnaby Buttes Professional Review and Guide

"Easy access, being a loop, and having plenty of views make this hike one of the more popular in the Kettles. From the trailhead, head left (south) on the Kettle Crest Trail, quickly coming to a junction with the Sherman Pass Trail (which travels 4 miles to the Jungle Hill Trail) and the Sherman Pass Tie Trail (which heads 0.7 mile to the Sherman Overlook Campground). For Sherman Peak, continue right, dropping steeply into a cool, wet, tight ravine (elev. 5360 ft). Climb out of it and come to SR 20 at 0.4 mile. The trail resumes on the other side of the highway; be careful crossing the road."

"This is a straightforward hike to one of the loneliest summits on the Kettle Crest. It also offers one of the easiest approaches to the lofty Kettle high country. The Barnaby Buttes Trail utilizes an old fire tower service road, which is now a wide, gentle trail.

The trail begins by a tumbling little creek (4500 ft.) and traverses a lush forest of pine and larch. Ample shade along the way will keep you and your pooch from overheating. Your buddy will probably pick up the scents of resident bruins: bear scat, tracks, and scratches are abundant along this trail. Keep your intrepid pup close."
