Description

If you love to hike through pine-clad mountains with just your pup for company, you'll love the Anderson Butte Trail in the Noisy-Diobsud Wilderness area of the state of Washington. The scenery is breathtakingly impressive. You'll probably need some technological navigational assistance to find the trailhead as it's tucked away from civilization along a forest service road.

Make your way to the trailhead by driving from Concrete on the Burpee Hill Road until it joins up with Baker Lake Road by the Lake Tyee caravan park. Keep right and continue for around fourteen miles past the Kulshan Campground until you cross over the dam. Take a left onto forest service road for about ten miles then left again onto forest road 1107022. That road will bring you to the trailhead where there's a parking lot. Yes, just finding the trailhead to the Anderson Butte Trail is an adventure in itself. 

Carry water, protein bars, and clean up bags along for the hike. Don't forget to have your Washington State Parks Discovery Pass displayed on your vehicle or you could be fined $100. The Discovery Pass can be purchased online from the Discovery Pass website. They cost $10 for a daily pass or $30 for an annual pass.

Leash your pup when you leave your vehicle, it's an isolated area, and you won't want your pup to get lost out there. Once you're on the trail, you won't have to trek for long before you're rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding peaks. The hike is a short one, but is steep in places, and you and your pup will need to put some effort in to get to the top. Anderson Butte is over five thousand feet high and was a fire lookout point, so the views stretch for miles. From the top, you'll see the whole of the snow-capped Cascade mountain range and the blue of the lakes nestled between them. Have a pawsome hike in the pines with your pup!
