North Dakota, United States
White Butte is the highest point in the U.S. state of North Dakota. At an elevation of 3,506 ft (1,069 m), it is a prominent butte in Slope County, in the Badlands of southwestern part of the state. It is a fairly easy climb; the hike takes about one hour, round-trip. The best time to go is during the early summer when the prairie flowers are in bloom. Prairie rattlesnakes are known to inhabit the area.
The nearest town is Amidon, about seven miles to the north. The summit is located just inside the Little Missouri National Grassland and is about 35 miles south of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
The Killdeer Mountains, 100 miles to the north, rise 900 feet from their foothills, but are 300 feet shorter than White Butte.
