Barnaby Buttes Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"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."
