Beautiful and short hike. Definitely slippery on the way down if it’s wet out. A bit of a workout too. I’ll definitely be coming back to this one.

First time to Butler Lodge! Fun quick hike. Took me just under an hour via Butler Lodge Trail, had a wonderful lunch with lots of sun but very windy!

Great trails great view and awesome cabin, some parts were a little sketchy for anyone traveling with a little one in a backpack, slippery rocks with no alternate way around but overall a great hike and great day.

Pretty hike but lots of water coming down the trail/rock which made hiking a little more taxing.

It was a great hike with friends! Although difficult at times due to the constant incline, it was definitely a good workout! Took us about an hour to get up to the lodge and maybe 45mins to go back down. Bugs weren't too bad but I'd still recommend having bug spray on you. Other than the lodge to sit around, there isn't too much sitting areas. Going down was great since it was a giant slope downhill. I'd also recommend bringing more than one water bottle to keep hydrated since multiple breaks will be needed up and down the trail. Overall, would definitely recommend to those looking for a bit of a workout.

Brisk uphill on the way in provides a good workout, nice views at the top. BUT there were intense clouds of mosquitos for the entire hike, and some of the trail is across treacherous slick bare rock. Definitely worth doing, but bring your DEET and a good set of boots or risk having a bad time.

Enjoyed this hike, still had a good amount of snow on the trail once you got halfway up.

Beautiful trail. There were quite a few cars in the parking lot when we got there but really didn't see many people on the trail which was great. Not difficult terrain but steady incline. Love the fact that you can connect to other trails once you get to the Lodge. Ended up doing the Rockgarden and Frost trails on the way down. Will definitely do again.

Pretty greenery. Very few people on trail which was a place. Saw several small children so I'd say kid friendly! The lodge was cool. Would love to visit the other trails soon.

Its pretty much a straight shot up to the lodge...depending on your pace, you can really get your heart rate up. It was a bit overcast, so the views left much to be desired. The lodge was pretty nice. A lot nicer than some of the shelters I have seen. Trials were not too muddy even after a full day of rain the night before, which was a pleasant surprise. Quick hike overall, took just under 2 hours when all was said and done (including a 15 min rest at the lodge).

this trail was beautiful. just challenging enough to get a good workout. the view at the lodge is excellent. would definitely do this again. we had a 5 year old and my hiking buddy had her 2 year old son on her back. saw a lot of families on this trail.

Wonderful trail. The hike is gorgeous and includes many different kinds of mushrooms, a waterfall, and scenery to die for (I hiked this trail on July 30). Make sure you wear shoes with good tread as this trail has a ton of slippery rocks.

Round-trip it took me about 2 1/2 hours. I will definitely be back!
