Hackberry Mini-Loop. Arrived at the horse lot at 6:13pm and started my run. Sunset at 6:41pm, so I knew I better hurry. At less than one mile in, heard the sound of running water. Light was already fading so I cut through the first pass before the actual Hackberry Spring pass. Even as time was limited, I couldn't pass up the chance to charge up the slick rock ridge to my right. 200 ft aeg in 5 minutes. That got my heart pumping. The post sunset view was worth it. I took a short water break and headed down towards the old ranch. Back to the trailhead at 7:05pm with not much light left. This is a great 2.25 mile mini-loop if you need a quick hike fix with limited time or limited daylight.
This is my gym. I have to travel down a bumpy road to get there. There are no treadmillls, no machines, and no personal trainers. I walk..I run..I breathe the fresh air. I can go any time I want, as much as I want and there is no membership fee.
