HIKED THIS ONE AS THE ALT RETURN ROUTE FROM FREMONT SADDLE. AS I WAS READING ON THE DESCRIPTION THIS TRAIL SEEMED LIKE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ALOT HARDER THAN IT REALLY WAS. THE TRAIL ISNT REALLY HARD TO MISS AS THEIR ARE CAIRNS EVERYWHERE. ALOT OF THEM I NOTICED TO BE JUST THE BIG ROCKS ON THE BOTTOM, THE SMALLER ONES HAVE FALLEN, I GUESS NOBODY HIKES THIS ONE IN THE SUMMER...SO I DID MY PART IN REBUILDING MOST OF THEM. TRUE, THE CAVES (ALCOVES) ARENT REALLY MUCH TO GET EXCITED ABOUT. THE DEVILS SLIDE IS OVER-RATED, THAT WAS VERY EASY, BUT SCORES A TEN ON THE TOEJAM FACTOR. PAST THE TUB WAS STILL EASY, ITS SEEMS LIKE ALOT OF PEOPLE BUTT HIKE THIS PART, BUT IF YOU LOOK CAREFULLY THERE IS NATURALLY MADE STEPS IN THE ROCK, SO YOU CAN HIKE DOWN CAREFULLY WITHOUT GETTING YOUR BUTT DIRTY. ONCE MORE BY CATHEDRAL ROCK THE TRAIL IS IN A FEW DIFFERENT PLACES, BUT ALL COME TOGETHER ON THE WEST SIDE OF IT. ALL IN ALL ITS A GREAT HIKE DOING THIS AS A LOOP FROM PERALTA TRAIL UP TO FREMONT SADDLE AND BACK DOWN THIS ROUTE. ITS ALOT BETTER THAN HIKING BACK DOWN THE SAME TRAIL YOU WENT UP! THIS IS OK TO HIKE ALONE, ITS ALOT EASIER THAN ALL THE HYPE. BUT STILL FOR THE BEGINNER DO NOT HIKE IT WITHOUT SOMEONE WHO HAS SOME EXPERIENCE.... ONCE COMING TO THE BLUFF SPRINGS TRAIL I ENCOUNTERED MY FIRST RATTLESNAKE SINCE I MOVED OUT HERE IN AZ. IT WAS JUST A BABY, AND I BARELY HAD SEEN IT IN FRONT OF ME. BUT GOT ME VERY EXCITED!
