Really great hike. really wanted to do Butterfly but oddly enough, I am a Ben and I got there at 11am (from previous comments). I had to get the kids by 5pm. I think the way to Butterfly is a big hike, not close, not quick, not easy. Sounds like my kinda fun. next time, I get there early.
hazy day on quartz peak Date Climbed: Dec 13, 2003
Did this hike with a small group from Arizonahikers.com. A beautiful day in December overlooking the Phoenix metro. Could hardly get any views due to a brush fire nearby making it to smokey to see hardly anything. Very impressive boulders of quartz on top. I wish we made the hike to Butterfly Peak.
