Description

This trail can be ridden lots of different ways and can be linked in with many Adam's Gulch area or Fox Creek trails. Access from Adam's Gulch trailhead.

Named after the longtime F.S. Recreation Manager and trail advocate Butch Harper, this route climbs gentle switchbacks up flower-sprinkled northeast-facing slopes from the Hulen Way trailhead.
