Thanks for the info on the campsites. Rogers route does sound nice but it would be too early into the hike and since this is my first time in the Santa Ritas I think I'll stay on marketed trails. So then I'll just find a little protection on Baldy saddle or there about. Also, I get the impression that the super trail is easier but maybe not quite as lush/green would I do well to take old baldy to Josephine saddle then switch to the super trail to avoid some of the switchbacks? I am doing the loop counter clockwise. And thanks for the map Joe, I've got the green trails map but I'm gonna print yours as well.
I can't stay, so I have to keep moving; but my ambition, is to be there.
