First hike on the new 2014 trailhead to saddle segment.

Arrived early. Appeared the masses were swarming. A tall chain link fence blocked the new entrance. Two cop cars with lights flashing held back the swarming crowds.

All true minus the crowds. The media and rangers may have out numbered the hikers.

Sonny ( Sam ) in something like his 38th year on Camelback told me a year ago he wasn't coming back. Apparently he meant starting today... lol

The new segment looks nice. Appears to have been cut with a mini-dozer like the McDowells. It's very easy on the knees. I'm not sold on the necessity but it sure looks nicer than the old railroad tie ridge.

The new route adds little to the mileage. It's getting closer to the old overrated value... not really.
