Located in the Bureau of Land Management's Upper Snake Field Office, the twin Menan Buttes are two of the world's largest tuff cones - volcanoes that formed when basaltic magma boiled up through ground water. The trail to the summit of the North Butte offers exceptional opportunities to explore the unique geology and natural history of this area. In 2007, the BLM constructed a new trail to allow the public better and easier access to enjoy this natural beauty. The BLM also spent time and money installing interpretive kiosks, helping the public learn while enjoying the North Menan Butte.
