1st trip
I started very early since the Lost Dutchman Marathon was closing off AZ88 early. Early on it was dark and a little chilly but it got lighter and warmer soon enough.

I did the basic Black Mesa/LDT loop and included an out an back on the Bull Pass Trail, doing part of the unofficial bypass trail to the LDT and back on the whole Bull Pass Trail and then did a hike up to the top of Black Top Mesa. I looked for the Spanish Hieroglyphs/petroglyphs but only found one Indian looking petro. I looked mainly on the east side but only saw that one. I'm not sure if there are any others one the south or west sides.

On the way back I took the Black Mesa Trail and stopped at the Indian ruin at Garden Valley for a bit and ran into a bunch of touron hikers on the last 1.5 miles.
