“A neat little run around the rim of an extinct volcano.”— Christopher Rix
A radio tower is in operation at the highpoint of the butte. The terrain is generally easy to navigate with several steep inclines and rocky spots. Some people prefer to have trekking poles or a walking stick for the run. Great views of the surrounding area can be had from the edge of the rim, and the butte itself is interesting to observe and explore.
