Red Butte is located in the Kaibab National Forest in Coconino County, Arizona. It is known to the Havasupai nation as Wii'i Gdwiisa, "clenched fist mountain", and is regarded as a sacred site.http://www.ratical.org/ratville/native/havasupi.txt
Red Butte is the most notable feature on the Coconino Plateau between the San Francisco volcanic field and the Grand Canyon. Its base is formed of sandstones of the Moenkopi Formation. Above that are strata of the Shinarump Conglomerate; the summit is capped with volcanic rocks.
A trail leads to the summit along the west side. The summit affords a good view of the San Francisco Peaks, but because of the slope of the Coconino Plateau, only the uppermost part of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon can be seen.
