Ascent Trip ReportAccess for Skookum Butte is a bit of a maze on the road network. From Hwy 97 take FR 94 to FR 9415 and then to FR 9418. FR 9418 is not a good road but it climbs over a saddle on the south side of Skookum Butte. At the saddle there is a worse road that goes up to the summit of Skookum Butte. On the summit there are some benchmarks where a fire lookout once stood, but this isn't the highpoint. You will notice several rock outcroppings nearby and they aren't the high point either. Look north through the brush and notice a larger pile of rocks about 200 ft away. Bushwhack over to the rocks and scramble up to the high point where more benchmarks are located.
