McClellan Butte Trail

"2nd trip this year - finally without snow. Made the summit block. The trailhead had one car at 10:30 AM. The trail is in great shape, with the exception of 4 blowdowns - three are at the trail junction where it turns back North to the summit on the Southern side facing the Cedar River watershed - no issues traversing the downed trees. Once you cross FS Road 9020, the steepness begins - long switchbacks and longer sustained stretches will provide for a good workout, as between 2-4 miles is where you will gain the most elevation.

"Cool climb of McClellan with the boys and Nick and Mike. Scrambled to the top, and spent an hour teaching the boys ice axe self arrest. Snow gulleys with lots of water running underneath still..." - BryHong8, May 30, 2016
