The trail is open to motorcycle, hiker, horse and bicycle use. The trail receives heavy motorized use.

This trail climbs steadily from Forest Road 78 for 1 mile to a semi-open ridgetop where Mt. Adams and Hamilton Buttes can be seen. The trail continues to the junction with the more heavily used Blue Lake Ridge Trail #271 near Blue Lake.

The Blue Lake Butte Trail can be found on a 1917 forest map. The trail was most likely built by sheepherders grazing their flocks through the area in the early 1900s.
