Features: This trail into the Vinegar Hill-Indian Rock Scenic Area offers a spectacular vista of the Middle Fork Valley and the peaks of the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness far to the south, while ascending the south face of Sunrise Butte. Although the bottom portion of this slope is timbered most of the trail is open sagebrush with limited access to water until reaching the crest. Parts of the trail were recently burned, so be aware of falling snags in high winds.

Access: From US Highway 7, one mile north of Austin Junction (US Highway 395) turn west on County road 20 (Middle Fork of the John Day River road) and go 8 miles to Forest Service road 4550. Follow the 4550 road to the intersection with the 4555 road. Follow the 4555 road to the trailhead.

Whoa! Nellie...

If I had some more complete information for Sunrise Butte Trail I'd show you the Google® Map to it, for sure.

If you know the GPS Coordinates for this trailhead, you can edit it yourself by joining us free. Help me out here...I'm leaking good karma.
