Step into the Butler Butte Cabin and step back in time to the days of WWII, when the threat of forest fires wasn’t just from lightning strikes. Butler Butte Cabin sits at an elevation of 5,500 feet in an open grassy understory, hemmed in by old-growth forests and sub-alpine meadows. In spring, meadows welcome a pallet of lush green grass and wildflowers, and in fall, vivid colors mark the changing of seasons. The forest showcases a variety of old-growth pine, fir and cedar. Located in the Tiller Ranger District in southwestern Oregon, the cabin offers relaxation and recreation for visitors in the spring and summer. A 4-wheel drive or high clearance vehicle is recommended. The roads are not plowed in the winter. During an average winter, up to a five-mile snowmobile, cross country ski, or snowshoe excursion is often required to reach the cabin; and guests must bring several of their own supplies.
