Fun Hike
I parked a but further out so it was over 10 miles.
A few Jeeps kicked up the dust but definitely fun hike and worth the views!

The trail to Butler Peak is pretty standard, easy for driving. I was able to make it through the whole trail without having to go into 4WD, high clearance vehicle still required. The views are beautiful and the views from the Fire Watch Tower at the end of the trail is one of the best mountain views you can get in the area.
