Decided to join Joe and Bruce for the Sawtooth Ridge adventure loop. Joe wanted to do the entire ridge but in the interest of not hiking in the dark we decided to drop down off the ridge earlier than planned. In retrospect looking at the route we may have had an easier time continuing on the ridge and going down the planned way instead of the horrendous route we chose. Our exit would have still been in the dark but probably with far less battle scars. The route we chose down seemed to take forever as we crashed through the chaparral, manzanita, and holly oak (ouch!). Once down we found the trail and were pleasantly surprised by the easy walking despite reports of heavy brush on the trail. There were spots we had to look around for the trail but on the whole it was decent. Water and small pools in Spencer Canyon were great with several cool sections of Sycamore and some concrete water tanks around Spencer Spring. Tough hike but we made it out just at sunset. For only 7.6 miles this had to be one of the hardest hikes for that distance.
