With the back half of the Swift Trail now open for summer, I headed up my favorite mountain for an overnight trip to the Riggs Flat Lake area. First drove to the end of the ST and took the Clark Peak trail a couple of miles down to the first big meadow enjoying the great open views of the Gila & Sulpher Springs valleys below. Hiked up to Clark Peak on the return trip and back down to the TH where I then got on the CP Flat Loop trail. First time on this short trail and I was very surprized by the amount of aspens along the road. This trail must look awesome during autumn! I also came across some of the biggest (very fresh) bear tracks I have ever seen up here along side a few lion tracks. After completing the loop, I drove back down to beautiful Riggs Lake and got my campsite set up for the night with just enough time left to walk down to the lake and catch the sunset.
