East Half SoMo (with Telegraph Pass carry-up)

Halving completed a West half SoMo with a carry-up Telegraph Pass yesterday (check out :next: http://hikearizona.com/photoset=28240 ), I naturally needed to complete an East half SoMo with a carry-up Telegraph Pass to maintain balance in the universe.

I met Clark Norgaard by chance hiking up Telegraph Pass. We chatted as I did the carry-up to the saddle.

From the saddle, I launched into a speed ride down Summit Road and onto Central Avenue before veering off to the Big and Little Ramadas Picnic Areas to check out a couple of (unknown to me) trails I hadn’t explored before – T-bone and Ma Ha Tauk. The T-Bone Trail connects to the Max Delta Loop and Crosscut Trails. Meandered east along the Crosscut Trail that morphs into the Las Lomitas Trail (or is it Los Lomitas Trail) and eventually deposits you at the South Mountain Park Visitor Center where I discovered another new (at least new to me) trail – Judith Tunnell Interpretive Loop.

After checking out the Judith Tunnell Interpretive Loop (no bikes allowed, so had to keep a constant eye on my bike), headed east across the parking lot to explore some of the Box Canyon Loop, Holbert Trail, and Box Canyon. I found a new connector trail from the Holbert TH to the north end of 7th Street.

From 7th Street, I joined onto the Highline Canal Urban Trail before connecting with the Beverly Canyon Trail and Desert Classic at the Pima TH. Desert Classic took me home allowing enough time to catch the 4th quarter of the Packers/49ers game…

My new tubeless tires continue to ride well on the trail albeit they did add noticeable weight for the carry-up. Some of the “new to me” trails marked on the official SoMo Park map :next: http://phoenix.gov/webcms/groups/intern ... 062880.pdf
