We started out at Sunset Trail (off Catalina Hwy), passed through Marshall Gulch picnic area, where we then traveled Aspen Trail to Marshall Gulch Trail for the return to the picnic area. We had another person along who moved the car and didn't do the hike with us. It made for a little over 5 miles. The weather was beautiful, but warm in the sun. Green growth is everywhere and parts of the Marshall Gulch Trail are amazing. (See pictures.) In other parts of the trails you can still smell burnt wood. The Aspen Trail had hundreds of small aspen about 4-5 feet tall. One day this will again be an Aspen Trail. Ferns cover other parts of the burned forest floor and wild flowers are still in bloom--Indian paintbrush, lupine, thistle, and a small yellow flower. Although fire damage is evident, there's still plenty of shade and parts of this loop are beautiful.
