Short Note on Hampton Butte

Cellular Provider: 

I found that the turnoff at Lizard Creek Road off of Highway 20 was not marked by any sign. However, it is about 0.75 east of MP57 and exactly 33.0 miles from the Millican Store if you are coming from Bend.

The drive up the gravel road to the summit was 7.3 miles. Easily passable in a passenger car.

There is one pretty rough juniper tree that did not work well for holding up a SOTA pole. I used the numerous volcanic rocks on the summit and a crack in the rocks to wedge my pole upright.  There is also a very dilapidated shed on the top that could provide some shelter and perhaps a wall to support an antenna pole.

Awesome views. Also see the trip report by Phil-NS7P.
