Hittin' the Trails 4 You: Mt. Lemmon's Butterfly Trail

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - It's one of the tougher hikes in Tucson, located in the Santa Catalina Mountains.

Mt. Lemmon's Butterfly Trail is a moderate to difficult trek, with an out & back distance of roughly 11 miles. Along the way you'll find gorgeous flora and fauna. Monsoon rainfall is helping to blossom beautiful wildflowers that flank the path.

It's also the site of plane wreckage from a mid-air collision back in the 1950's. Click here to read more about the crash, which thankfully left the two pilots safe.
