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.
