My only complaint would be there are not enough cows.

What a spectacular view of this copper mine. The drive up Butterfield Canyon about freaked my wife out, single lane and a sheer drop over the edge. The trip to the overlook was a gravel road with some rough patches which a car could make but slow as you go or it would be easy to do some damage.

Drove up butterfield canyon and once the pavement stopped and the road forks we parked and hiked up. Took us about an hour and a half from the car to the mine overlook. And about an hour coming down.

Crappiest hike ever. The whole thing is a gravel road with vehicles going by the whole time. And the side of the road is littered with beer bottles and food wrappers. The view of the mine is great but if that's what you want then drive up to the top like everyone else and find somewhere else to hike.

Hike is mostly uphill. Beautiful view, wild flowers and butterflies everywhere. Takes a while before you reach water. Nice Creek to cool off in and for the kids to play in.

Good for a quick hike, but nothing's special

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
