Red Butte is another scrub hump with a fully-operational windmill atop it. It is located along Kepps Crossing Road and is on private land. However, I encountered no fencing, signage, or orange paint prohibiting entry. I suspect that the utility company that operates these windmills isn’t too concerned about the occasional summit-obsessed hiker who shows up and spends ten minutes on a round-trip hike of the peak.

From Kepps Crossing Road (6,065 feet), scramble up across easy open field grass then sagebrush to reach the windmill-clad summit of Red Butte. This arduous journey requires only 0.4 miles and 135 feet of elevation gain round trip. Should not take more than ten minutes round trip.
