Butterfly Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A hike on the cool, northeast slopes of Mount Bigelow, in the Santa Catalina Mountains. The north-facing slopes along the Butterfly Trail are mostly covered with a lush green pine–fir forest. As the trail crosses slopes with slightly different aspects, you can clearly see the effect of microclimates. West- and south-facing slopes are drier and warmer, and the tall trees give way to chaparral."
