Cinder Cone Butte

Elevation: 3,426 ft

Cinder Cone Butte is a large cinder cone which can be spotted south of Interstate 84 near exit 74. There are several electronics installations on its summits. A good road leads to the top. This butte has 336 feet of prominence and is by far the most distinctive feature in this section of the Snake River Plain. From Exit 74, drive south on Simco Road to South Cinder Road. From this point, drive as close to the summit as suits your energy level and hike or ride a mountain bike to the top.

My GPS track. I only rode the last 0.8 miles to the top as I had three other butte's on my list for the day.
