I set out for a loop using Marshall Gulch (535' AEG & 2.4 mi RT), Wilderness of Rocks (550' AEG & 3.85 mi), Mount Lemmon (1870' AEG & 4 mi), and the Aspen Trail (1.2 mi & 0' AEG), with a side trip to loop around with the Meadow trail (260' AEG & .8 mi), also the additional hike back up on the Mount Lemmon Trail with a side trip to the L.O. ( 1.25 mi). I walked to the gate, but didn't go to the true summit as I had dilly dallied on the hike and it was getting late. All in all, a spectacular day with incredible views. Another great hike with lots of nice pine smells, but no oaks. The incredible views from the Mount Lemmon trail more than made up for that. Another great hike in the Catalinas. Hardly saw anyone, and as I was getting back to my car I heard whip-por-whils, and another bird that I think is a warbler and makes me think of my time back east in hardwood forests. Awesome hike.

I used HAZ GPS tracks and summit elevations to get my AEG and mileage. I must say, the mileage seems right on, but I am surprised how high the AEG is. I believe our GPS tracks to be mostly accurate, and as such, that is a pretty good loop and one with fantastic rewards for the effort.
