The original plan was to do The Battleship in the canyon but with our Boucher Rapids hike the previous day going so late we decided to take the consolation prize of Red Butte. We pass this butte every time going to the canyon and so I did quick route HAZ lookup and sure enough there was the description. Nice little hike with awesome views on top of Humphreys, Kendrick, and the GC. The trail is very well maintained and some of the best switchbacks I've been on in awhile. We spent about 40 minutes on top enjoying the view and checking out the fire tower. It was locked but we could still enjoy the observation deck. After lunch we headed back down...not exactly The Battleship but nice hike regardless!
