Butcher Jones Trail

Before you ask, I have no idea who was Butcher Jones.  If you find out let me know.

This is an easy trail, meandering along the north shore of Saguaro Lake for two and a half miles to a rocky overlook, then return by the same route.  Highest elevation above the trailhead is perhaps 300 feet, but the trail is a bit “roller coastery” so accumulated elevation gain might be around 800 feet (just my estimate).  This is a well established route, so no route finding skills are required.

Today was a cool day, ideal for this sun-exposed route.  Really not a lot more to say, so enjoy the views below.
