A short. easy hike in some foothills adjacent to a residential area. If it's too short for you, you can take the upper loop more than once to pad out the time or distance. Sadly my GPS failed to capture our path on the trail. If you don't think it's scenic enough, look up and enjoy the grandeur of South Mountain.

Err, well, I don't know why this is a trail on here. Sure, there is a "trail" at this place but it is really short, not very interesting, and doesn't really go anywhere. The start of the trail is a bit difficult to locate and there isn't really parking at the "trail head". I suppose if you want a quick "hike" and some decent views of Ahwatukee neighborhoods this might be a good option, but there are so many better trails really close by!

I don't know who the Butler is, or why this short climb up a butte is called a "pass," but here it is. Mostly it's an easy climb up an old road grade, but there are use trails if you want to go scrambling. Not a destination hike, but fine for some quick outdoor time if you're nearby.

If you're in the area already, this is a quick way to get some outdoor time with nice views. However, the actual "trail" is just a wide flat path the size of a road cut into the side of this small mountain. The actual mountain is greatly diminished by the seemingly pointless destruction of the road being cut into it.
