People go way to fast through butterfield which is basically a single lane road. Seen a rattlesnake that someone cut the rattler off his tail. View of the mine is cool air quality sucks kinda hinders your view of the valley. Otherwise a fun little drive to see for miles!

The view at the top is nice, but other then that the trail is rocky and barren.

I hiked this trail today with three kids, husband, and dog. The steep inclines were tough on all of us, and the last bit was still covered in snow. However, the view of the mine and valley was totally worth it!

Beautiful drive but there's no trail plus we spoke to someone at the mine & they said it's been closed for 4 years. Drive is definitely worth it but do not expect a trail unless you're willing to walk into the woods with no signs & no direction

Pretty basic but hike up to the top of the bluff (trail not marked) near the park entrance view is beautiful there.

Ton of cows. Smelt bad and was chasing cattle the whole hike.

Only giving this hike a three because of the wildlife we seen. Very easy hike, not as scenic as most hikes, but close to home.

Little to No Off-road. Road to start is on packed dirt road with no trails for OHV.

Did this many years ago in the fall. Fun to see the mine. amazing the volume of soil moved over the years to create the pit.

So sad that Kennecot has destroyed so much land, polluted so much water and poisoned such a large area

fun area with lots to explore. any direction you go in you find mines, just follow the water. I think most of these pictures were taken on the back side of the canyon. The cows have made it hard to distinguish what is a trail and what isn't. just follow the atv trail till (past the 2 valve wheels sticking out of the ground) to the mine. from these head south east through the basin. just follow all the trees with initials carved in them. They will take you to a saddle where it the trail will fork. From there you can see Eagle Mountain. You can hit some small peaks to the east or go down to the valley below or hit the high peaks to the west. In 1 afternoon we went by 7 mines, 1 mine cart and I believe their are more. Good luck and have fun. Also just passed the turn around ( where their is a trail to hike if you don't want to use the same trail as the atv's) just before the atv trail really gets rough the is a path outlined with rock to you left. If you take that, it will lead to the top where middle, becomes Butterfield. Their is a step 10ish climb that someone has put ropes for you to use. after that is a pretty light hike. you pass the trucks that rolled down the canyon or what ever but that's about it beside a nice scenery. I'm not much for writing and grammar, sorry but I hope this helps.

Don't know if we where in the right canyon, didn't see any signs. Saw a lot of ATV and cows.

This is a cool trail with some neat views. I didn't go the whole 9 miles because I didn't bring enough water and in August it was pretty hot and unshaded (so bring water and a hat!!) I didn't see another person on the trail the whole morning!
