Reached locked gate but then I turned around and rode to the viewpoint. There was an access road on the north side of the viewpoint which takes you around.

Trail The Saddle
Description is a bit wrong when it says "connecting the top to the initial single track". As the name of the trail implies, this trail starts from the "Saddle" before the summit

Trail Cline Access
The gate has been closed all season and on the map next to it, it says that the Clone Butte area is closed to motorized vehicles. So there’s no shuttling any more it seems.

You can miss this trail if you’re not looking for it. It’s a switchback off an access road. Once on the trail, it will take you around to the West side of the butte. Cattle roam free on the North side which was pretty cool. Single track. Option to ride the Rock Drop or you can go around. Drop is probably around 6 or 8 feet. At the end of this trail you look to the top and realize you’re not close.
