Trail Information

Highlights

Mann Butte is a short, nearly two-mile extension off of NF-8620-070. It’s a trail that could easily be missed, but doing so would rob you of a spectacular view. Waypoint 3 offers both an amazing view of Mount Adams, as well as a fantastic campsite; albeit potentially windy. The drive to and from the viewpoint is a bit rough, and thus 4WD is recommended, but it is well worth the view, even if on foot. There are two additional dispersed campsites on this trail, at Waypoints 2 and 4, if the viewpoint is already full. While Waypoint 4 does mark the end of the trail, it does continue on, though it is too narrow for vehicles. Regardless if you’re looking for a place to camp, just in the area on a day trip, or crossing all of Washington state, this trail has a view that you won’t want to miss. This trail is part of the Washington Cascade Overland Route. Visit Overlanding Across Washington for more information, including which trails to take next.

great section to visit if running the first leg of the WABDR, the north side (waypoint 3) offers fantastic views but little to no shade if stopping for lunch. the south side has plenty of opportunity for dispersed camping and shade if only stopping for lunch.

Very easy trail along loose gravel. The campsite at waypoint 3 is amazing with one of the best views you can ask for. Tried to take my tacoma down waypoint 4 but after a while it's impassable with some opportunities for pinstriping.
