Please wear adequate footwear and bring trail snacks and plenty of water for you and your dog. The Butterfly Trail is a moderate to difficult out and back hike so mileage will depend on when you turn around. I plan on going to Novio Spring - approximately 6.4 miles round trip with 1600 ft elevation gain (starting elevation of 7800 ft). Hike time is approximately 4 hours for experienced hikers.
We will meet at the Butterfly trailhead which is approximately 22 miles after you begin climbing on Mt Lemmon Hwy (located on the right). Please plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early so we can start on time.
