|Other People:||Solo Ascent|

|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||6401 ft / 1951 m|
Ascent Trip ReportEast Butte has a nice Fire Lookout on the summit and appears to be in the middle of the East Fort Rock OHV System. I drove from Pine Mtn to East Butte using the road system, but I had good maps and waypoints set at key intersections. There are signs in places showing the route to East Butte. I believe the road I used is FR 2310 that intersects FR 23 in the valley between Pine Mtn and East Butte.
I drove to a locked gate on the road and then hiked the road in the snow up to the summit. On the descent I used OHV trail 55 to descend back to the lower road and saved about .5 mile of road walking. Nice hike.
