Official Description: The Butterfield Hiking
Trail gets its name from the Butterfield Stagecoach which ran in the area
between 1858-1861. The Butterfield Trail is one of the few looped backpacking
trails in the state. Beginning in Devil's Den State Park near the park's
pavilion, the trail crosses Hwy. 74 and passes near
Real Description: Rocky and technical. The trail is somewhat hard to follow but, marked with blue blazes and mile markers.
This run is not for the faint of
heart and not recommended for novice trail runners. Be prepared to run over and
through rock gardens, carry plenty of water and watch for trail makers.
