“A short trail that winds around Puffer Butte to get to panoramic views at the top.”— Fields Spring State Park
There are two nearby cafes, The Anatone Cafe 4.0 miles north in Anatone, and Boggans Oasis, 10.0 miles south, on the shore of the Grand Ronde River.
At the beginning, you'll run along a flat section for about 0.25 miles, coming across intersections with branching trails. Once past this section, the trail slowly starts to climb in elevation. Just after 1.0 mile of running, it switchbacks to give exposure on the south face of Puffer Butte. At 1.5 miles, the trails intersects and coincides with Butte Climb, before getting to the panoramic view point at the top along with a warming shelter with a fireplace and firewood.
Camping is allowed at the warming shelter. From the viewpoint, you can see Hell's Canyon to the east, Wallowa Mountains to the south, and Umatilla National Forest to the west. This turns into an intermediate groomed cross country skiing trail in the winter.
