Odell Butte is located in central Oregon. It stands 7,032 feet tall and is part of the Cascade Mountain Range. It is also part of Klamath County. A road leads to the top, but there is a gate about 1 mile from the summit. You will have to walk the last mile from the gate up to the summit.
To get there from US 97, find the Crescent Cutoff road in the small town of Crescent Oregon and drive west 7 miles to the Odell Butte Road, found on the north side of Odell Butte. Turn south on this road (dirt/gravel) and drive to a gate, located near the top of the peak. It is 6 miles from where you leave the Crescent Cutoff road (county road 61)and turn onto the Odell Butte Road to the gate. Park at the gate and walk the road, a distance of 8/10ths of a mile and a mere 500 feet of elevation gain.
If you are coming from I-5 (exit 188) via Oakridge on highway 58. It is 73 miles to county road 61 (crescent cut off road) and another 4 miles to the Odell Butte road on the north side. After you pass the Crescent Creek Campground about 3 miles from highway 58, start watching for the Odell Butte Road on the right, it is within a mile or so.
Note: Prior to finding the turnoff to county road 61, you will pass through the small town of Crescent Lake Junction and Odell Butte will be right in front of you as shown in the picture titled 'looking east'.
