Trail Description Driving Directions

alert Trail Alert, Nov 15, 2017: Trail closed due to the 2017 Eagle Creek fire. Currently there is no timeline for reopening. 

Head east on the paved bicycle road from Tooth Rock Trailhead, and past the electrical substation for a quarter mile. Watch for a damaged sign and a trail heading uphill to the right. After another quarter mile, watch for another trail going off to the right, more steeply uphill. A sign states that it leads to Trail #400. This trail quickly turns into a dirt road. Turn right, going uphill. In a couple hundred yards, take Road #777, cutting left. There is no sign here. Follow this for over a mile to the old Tanner Butte Trailhead. You will see a few signs here for Tanner Butte and Wauna Point.
