East Butte Trail - This is a well maintained trail with the beginning portions located within the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness. The trail drops steeply off the south west direction from the Teepee Trailhead on the down ridge side. The first mile of the trail is steep with many switchbacks and large rock outcroppings. The trail then follows along East Butte Creek to King Creek, where it is no longer maintained. Foot traffic can make it 1 1/2 miles more to the West Butte Trail. The view off the Teepee Trailhead is overwhelming toward the southwest. There is not water at the trailhead, but 1 1/2 miles down the road is Moolack Springs, one of the coldest springs on the district. East Butte Trail is steep and rocky at the beginning. This trail is lightly used, so it offers seclusion to camping and fishing opportunities into King Creek.
