I only went up to Quartz since my drive in took me too long but I will come back to tag Butterfly as well. This is a fantastic hike with a really remote feel. Awesome views.
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.
Got Butterfly Peak this time along with Quartz. Butterfly is further away than it looks from Quartz's summit. Nice rugged scramble over there.
Cool, humid day, which is weird for PHX ranges. Butterfly was tantalizingly close, but daylight was running low. Maybe Ben will wake up before 11 am next time...
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.
