Access the butte from [paved] Dietrich Butte Road from either US-26/US-93 in the north or ID-24 in the south. This road goes past the butte’s West Slopes. A fairly decent road leads east and then south to the high point. The butte’s terrain is open, making the summit accessible by foot from any direction. The road is perfect terrain for a mountain biking ascent. Class 1.
