Ascent Trip Report

"I like Big Butt and I cannot lie"

Heading up the namesake trail, there's a marked and blazed side trail that ascends from a point on the mountain's south ridge. The trail is easy and is nicely graded. At the top of the peak there are great views and what has to be the single funniest benchmark I've ever seen. Whoever named this mountain, I tip my hat off to you.
