Butterfield Canyon is a canyon in Salt Lake County, Utah, located just west of the city of Herriman. Butterfield Canyon Elementary School is located near the canyon.

Butterfield Canyon contains a paved road (except for a 1/4 mile portion on the Tooele side that is well-maintained dirt) that connects Tooele with Herriman. Butterfield Canyon road climbs to a summit of 9,180 ft. above sea level. At night, the mouth of the canyon is a dangerous area as large herds of deer move into the farmlands for feeding.
