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 owned by Kennecott corporation (Butterfield Canyon Road - closed Nov 1 to June 1). Butterfield Canyon road climbs to a summit of 9,180 ft above sea level. Past the summit, when it becomes Middle Canyon Road on the Tooele county side of the mountain, there is a 1/4 mile portion that is well-maintained dirt. When roads on both sides of the mountain are open, they connect the city of Tooele with Herriman city.

At night, the mouth of the canyon is a dangerous area as large herds of deer move into the farmlands for feeding.
