this trail

This was a magnificent climb of a peak I've been driving past for years. We showed up without a current map and a dead gps, with a vague idea that there was a ridge from the east that needed following. It was refreshing to go out and spend a day route finding on trails that haven't yet been gentrified. At the same time, the cairns were welcome landmarks, and it seemed everytime we were about to take a bearing & strike out on our own we would find another marker & a faint path through the brush.

The "Jeep Road" allows access without any gates or corrals, and apparently it crosses over to the west foothills & spits you out somewhere near the City of Rocks. That would be a fun day on a MTB or something...

There are additional route comments attached when you click on each photo. Any comments to these photos are most welcome.
