The Butterfield Hiking Trail gets its name from the Butterfield Stagecoach which ran in the area between 1858-1861. The Butterfield Hiking Trail is one of the few looped backpacking trails in the state. Beginning in Devil's Den State Park at Camp Area A, the trail crosses State 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. Camping is restricted to designated campsites spaced along the trail.
Directions: From Fayetteville, Travel eight miles south on I-540 to Exit #53 (West Fork), then go 17 miles southwest on Arkansas Hwy. 170 until you reach the park.
Distance: 14.5 miles
