Built in 1914, the Butterfly Lodge was home to Western writer James Willard Schultz and his artist son, Lone Wolf.

The 1.5-mile guided walk takes visitors through this ancient village of the ruins of 50 to 60 rooms, including a great kiva and astrological observatory.

The tall pines provide a perfect picnic setting, and interpretive displays help visitors understand the complexities of raising trout.
