Made another trip to this county park to hike some of the new trails that have been built since I last visited almost a year and a half ago. The Malpais Trail gets very close to the mountain at the southwest corner of the park, but most of it goes thru a sandy wash, which isn't very pleasant to slog thru. A biplane was overhead for a small portion of the hike doing loop-de-loops and making a lot of noise. At the southwest corner of the park, Picacho Peak is visible. The temps were mild, only beginning to get a little warm at the end. Didn't see any animals along the trail, but there were about 3 baby coyotes within a cyclone fence enclosure back by the TH.
