From Government Camp travel east on Hwy. 26, then take Hwy. 35 north towards Hood River. After 4.5 miles you will cross the White River; just past the river you will see the White River East Snow Park. Turn right (south) here and head down paved Forest Service (FS) road 48. Go 7 miles down FS 48 and turn left onto FS road 4890, which is marked after you turn onto it. Go 3.75 miles and turn left onto FS road 4891, following signs to Bonney Meadows. This rough 4-mile stretch will take you to Bonney Meadows Campground; take advantage of the outhouse here as it is the only one in the area. Continue past Bonney Meadows Campground to a gated spur road on the left. Park here and hike up the spur road about 0.25 mile to the observation point at the summit of Bonney Butte. Sun and wind can be intense on the butte, so plan and dress accordingly.
