Hiking The Upper-Butterfly Trail To Novio Falls — Image by kenne

This week’s SCVN hike on Mt. Lemmon took place on the Butterfly Trail, hiking to Novio Falls (approximately 2.5 miles) and back. Starting at 7,700 foot elevation, the trail goes down 200 feet to an old campsite & saddle, one mile out. The trail continues down 350 feet, .4 of a mile to the junction with the Crystal Springs Trail. At this point, some of the hikers turned back to the trailhead.

Four of us continued on to Novio Falls, another mile out taking us down to an elevation of 6,500 feet. The area normally has flowing falls, formed from several springs — not this year. The last few years have been very dry, so dry this year that many of the oak trees have already begun to drop their leaves. 

The weather for the hike was partly sunny with a little higher that normal temperature and humidity — lower 70′s with a 35% humidity. I have done this hike several times, but this one was the least fun, since I struggle climbing the elevation change of 1,200 feet. Suffering from watery eyes, a lot of sneezing and a very try throat, I now know I was in the early stages of a summer cold.
