There are three fire roads, Powellton Rd to you left, A- Line in the center and an un named to your right , as you pull in from road.

Just stay straight on the fire road at all wyes and you can be in Butte Meadows for lunch in 1 to 2 hours. This is an old railroad grade so it is never more than 3% grade total elevation gain 3496

    If you want a couple hours of big ring ripping, nice views, no other riders, might find logging trucks some days
