The Butterfield Hiking Trail gets its name from the Butterfield Stagecoach which ran in the area between 1858-1861. The Butterfield Trail is one of the few looped backpacking trails in the state. Beginning in Devil's Den State Park near the park's pavilion, the trail crosses Hwy. 74 and passes near Mount Olive. Scenic views, such as Blackburn Creek and Vista Point, are plentiful. Rock formations and mountainous outcroppings provide photographers with dramatic subjects. Backpackers must obtain a free permit at the park office before beginning their hike.

Location: 8 miles south of Fayetteville on I-540 (Exit 53),then 18 miles southwest on Hwy. 170, or 7 miles west of I-540 (Exit 45) at Winslow on Hwy. 74.
