We woke up early and risked the forecasted thunderstorms-- and we won! The weather was amazing. It was cool and humid upon our arrival and the clouds allowed the blue skies to show by 11am. This was my first time on the Cabin Loop Trails and I was very pleased. We made it out to Dane Cabin and returned from there due to my friend's knee troubles. The wildlife was out as well. We saw two gatherings of elk and at Dane Cabin we met the friendliest chipmunk ever. He kept coming (un-lured) within a couple feet of me as I ate lunch. My only other thought on this hike is the ratings on the trip description. I might give the route finding a 3 only because we weren't the only ones we met on the trail that day that went the wrong way a couple times. I would also bump the difficulty up to a 3. Although much of the hike is a stroll, Barbershop Canyon is a beast to come out of. We also saw some mountain bikers and wondered how they were going to maneuver that area. Today was perfect and I dreaded returning to the Phoenix heat.
