- Anderson Butte Trail is a strenuous 1.5 mile hike. Hikers will enjoy breathtaking views of many Cascade peaks from this old fire lookout site. Follow the Anderson/Watson Lakes Trail #611 for one mile to the first trail junction. At the junction, stay to the left. The trail climbs rather steeply for 0.5 mile to the 5420 feet elevation and abandoned lookout site. This trail enters the Noisy Diobsud Wilderness.
