Butcher Jones Trail - Saguaro Lake

  • Nov 18, 2012 · 12:00 PM

On Sunday, I am hiking the easy Butcher Jones Trail.  Meet me at noon, at the parking lot by Target, off of Shea and SR 87.  We will carpool to the trailhead.  The fee is $6 per vehicle.

 

Length: 5 miles roundtrip

Elevation Gain: 175 feet

Difficulty: EASY!

 

The hike offers scenic views of Saguaro Lake and the surrounding mountains.  Dogs are welcome on this hike.  Bring a light snack for the end of the trail and of course, plenty of water.

    Great Hike

    Tonto National Forest parking passes are available at the Circle K just up the street from the Target where we are meeting: Circle K #[masked] E. Shea Blvd.

    They have plenty of parking passes. Once we figure out the carpool situation, each vehicle should stop at the Circle K to purchase a pass, if they don't have one already.

    Thanks for the information.

    The parking passes are not available at the trailhead.you have to stop either before at a circle K or sporting goods store to get a Tonto Pass or stop at the marina. The passes are good for hiking ANY trail in the Tonto park so if you don't use it on this trip you can use it on another. I really like this trail.

    Usually there is a gate into the park where you buy the pass. Where is the trail head? Where does the hike start?

    Sondra, I'd love to carpool. I'm at Baseline and the 101. Where are you?

    November 14, 2012

    • Sondra

      I'm at the 101 and the 51. Probably best to meet at the carpool location in Fountain Hills since we are on opposite ends of town.

    No waiting list Zorilla?
