The Aspen Butte Trail, located in the Mountain Lakes Wilderness, is 1.1 miles long and is neither marked nor maintained.

The Aspen Butte Trail is a primitive trail that is neither marked nor maintained and is difficult to follow. For the adventurous traveler, the trail roughly follows the ridgeline up the western flanks of Aspen Butte to the site of a former lookout. From the lookout is a panoramic view of the wilderness below and the forested landscape to the south, with Mount Shasta in the distance. Only those skilled in non-trail orienteering should attempt this route. Please practice minimum trace visitation so that others may enjoy the view as well.

Directions: From Klamath Falls, Follow directions to the Mountain Lakes Loop Trail. The Aspen Lake Butte Trail is accessed from the loop trail at the southeastern point of the caldera rim overlooking Lake Harriette.
