The Barnes Butte TRACK Trail is an easy 1.1 mile loop around the Happy Hour Plateau racetrack with an optional strenuous 1.2 mile out-and-back to the summit.
Barnes Butte is made of volcanic rock and is part of the Crooked River Caldera, an ancient supervolcano. The volcano is extinct today, but was a powerful force that shaped the landscape 29.5 million years ago.
