Little Butte is a forested hump located west of US-20 and southwest of Island Park. It is a ranked summit and is a reasonable scramble via its north ridge from Little Butte Road/FSR-317. You may have a harder time dealing with badly-rutted FSR-317 than with the climb up the north ridge. Avoid FSR-317 in wet conditions. USGS Bishop Mountain
From its signed junction with US-20, drive west up Little Butte Road/FSR-317 for 2.6 rough miles on a badly-rutted dirt road that sees little use (or maintenance) these days. Park in a pullout on the left side of the road. At the 2.4-mile point, you cross the [obvious] north ridge of Little Butte. Walk back to this ridge crossing to begin the climb.
North Ridge, Class 2
From Little Butte Road at the crossing of the north ridge (6,365 feet), bushwhack southwest then south up the steep, forested ridge crest to the small summit of Little Butte. There is a use trail on the ridge crest. Sometimes it is good. At other times, it is weak and hard to follow. The final 100 vertical feet has no trail and requires a bushwhack up through thick veg and forest to reach the top. A large boulder is the high point. No summit cairn and no views from the top.
