Horsethief Butte

Horsethief Butte Professional Review and Guide

"Horsethief Butte is a large outcropping of basalt on the dry hills above the Dalles Dam area. It rises right in your face from the start of the trailhead and is a popular place for history buffs and rock climbers alike. There are social trails all over the butte, but a somewhat major trail circles its southwestern flank, with a spur trail climbing up into the craggy knolls in the middle. Lots of signs warn visitors not to deface the Native drawings on some of the more hidden rock faces."
