It was interesting to check out this trail, especially the portion of the route that the Forest Service has assigned as the Trailhead and initial mileage. Instead of the traditional path from the base of the Goat Springs wash where you get to see the very dramatic waterfall, they have placed the start of the hike over in the mouth of Marble Canyon, about .4 mile north... requiring you to hike up the paved road of a private, gated community, then up the old horse track, deeply eroded... and along and under the huge house on top of the ridge. It does connect up with the original trail at the house, but by that time you've missed some of the best parts of the hike. Very strange!

It is nice to have this access re-opened after having been closed off for some years... it is the best and easiest access to The Mesa, and a fun hike, great workout right here in the city.

Unfortunately, the locals are up to the usual.. cans, gum wrappers, toilet paper, etc litter the trail for the first mile. Oh, well...

Got light rain and snow today... a touch of winter. Fun to be back on a real trail after so many days crawling around off trail.
