    Directions to Trailhead

    Hiking the Rodley Butte Trail is a tough experience in Umpqua National Forest that will take you uphill through a dense forest along the slopes of Rodley Butte. Hikers should take note that much of this trail is littered with deadfall and overgrown brush, making navigation difficult; bring a GPS if you are concerned about staying on track.

    Route Description for Rodley Butte Trail

    If you are a glutton for punishment and find yourself in Umpqua National Forest, then the Rodley Butte Trail might just be the perfect route for you to explore. Overgrown paths, deadfall, and plenty of mosquitoes characterize this uphill climb set in the beautifully scenic Oregon landscape.

    Setting out from the trailhead near Diamond Lake, you will enter into the forest and make your way northwest, following the path as it bends west and climbs more sharply uphill. If you are able to press on past the fallen trees and overgrown brush, the tree cover will eventually lessen on the steep approach to Rodley Butte.

    Whenever you decide to turn back, you can follow the same route back down to the trailhead. If you want to experience an equally challenging – but easier to navigate – route in the area, check out our guide for the Mount Bailey Trail.
