Highlight: Bonney Butte Road
At the top of Bonney Butte Road in good weather on a clear day, Mount Hood looms large to the northwest while the snow-capped peaks of Mount Jefferson and the Three Sisters glisten in the distance to the south. Even though Bonney Butte Road is less than a mile long, it packs in some amazing views and a fun trail with good restroom facilities. The remnants of the old fire lookout, removed in the 1960s, and the interpretive information signs about the annual raptor migration are interesting in their own rights but people keep coming back to Bonney Butte for the views. The road up Bonney Butte is closed to motorized traffic August 15 - November 1 to protect migrating raptors. However, if you are in the area, the half mile hike from the trailhead parking area to the summit is worthwhile to watch HawkWatch International capture and tag raptors. More information about the migration can be found here: https://hawkwatch.org/migration/item/81-bonney-butte-hawkwatch
