This butte is about 250yrds along the ridge line and is only 5-10ft ranging in width. It's a nice hike to the top; but watch out for the Prairie Rattler. The snakes will lay out of the wind and in the sun. Also, if it's a windy day hold onto your hat cause the wind will be much stronger at the top. The way the butte is shaped causes the wind to accelerate as it is forced up and over. It has a surprising amount of Mule deer and is incredible to hunt.
