I came upon the east trailhead's signpost at the Mingus Work Center while hiking the Viewpoint-North Mingus loop. Driving home I found the west TH at Butterfly Spring. So I returned the next day to explore this mystery trail with no name. The hike went well at first, until I left Haywood Canyon. From there it was guesswork for a while as to whether or not I was "on trail". Cairns continued, so I did. Finally came across some more signposts, and eventually made it to the east TH. I returned the same way, but this time I got off route on the west end, where it drops into Haywood Canyon. I soon rejoined the route (thanks gps!), and returned to the west TH. A call to the Prescott National Forest's trail boss netted the name "Butterfly Trail". No longer a mystery!
