Just looking to get away for a minute from the pressures of caring for my brother in the final days of his battle with cancer. My father and I would wander the desert hiking and playing in the arid desert and climbing anything we could find. This was a nice warm up for a night of climbing and gazing at the stars from Mt Lemmon.
Cold, gray day with intermittent sun. Had the trail all to myself except for a few people at the very start. Well-constructed route with a variety of flora, and awesome views of the Catalinas and Rincons from the top. Surprised more people don't hike this peak. Log book had about 1-2 signatures per week. I suspect geocachers come up here too, given the trinkets that were crammed into the bottle.
Standard Route from west Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2012
I can hardly believe how few people I saw on this trail! It's a beautiful weekend day in February, the poppies are blooming on a trail in suburban Tucson...and once I got past Cat Track Tank, I saw only 5 others folks. Love it!
