McClellan Butte

McClellan Butte Professional Review and Guide

"Sometimes, you hike the steep trails to get the best possible views. Other times, you hike the steep trails just because they are steep. Mc Clellan Butte hikers generally fall into this later category. The trail is steep and physically demanding, while the views are less spectacular than you’ll find on other nearby trails.

But folks flock to this wonderful trail, using it as a warm-up for more serious alpine adventures later in the year. And unlike other "training" hills (Mount Si and Granite Mountain, for instance), Mc Clellan Butte doesn’t draw hundreds of people every day in the spring and summer. You’re not going to hike in solitude, of course (every trail in the I-90 corridor draws weekend boot traffic), but you might only see a few other people as you sweat your way to the summit."

Snow at about 2/3 way up. Snow was coming down on Saturday (approximately 6 inches by next morning), avalanches already in two of the northeast chutes, third one was sketchy. Snowed Sunday but less. Snow pack was pretty compact, ice in patches, especially on trail.
