Love the trail. Also keep to the left when you come to the Butler trail sign. I stayed on the same color path(orange) and it took me another 5miles to get out. So follow the red trail on the way it, red is shown to exit out...

A very nice hike. Be careful when the path splits at a trail sign for Butler Springs Trail. Stay to the left here, even though the color changes from orange to red.
