Red Butte view with named mounain peaks

At 8,283 feet Red Butte is a popular hike for locals. Accessed off Cemetery Lane the destination provides one of the best panoramic vistas around town providing views of all four ski mountains including Pyramid Peak to Mount Sopris. If you would like to see a panorama without the peak names click here.
To locate the trail look for the public access point on the west side of the road just past Silver King Drive. It's a little rocky and has some exposed sections - not advisable as a winter hike. There is no other access off the mountain except the way you came.
