Joe and Bruce put together a really nice loop hike traversing Four Peaks Trail #130, then hitting Oak Flat Trail #123 and some off trail up Baldy Canyon. Baldy Canyon off trail wasn't too bad and had a few narrow spots that made this section well worth the effort. Eventually we hopped on the Chillicut trail where the climb really started. The views just got better as we climbed higher all the way to Four Peaks Trail.

The Four Peaks Trail traverse felt like a super highway with all the recent work done on the trail. This section is really awesome and gives the best views you will get anywhere of Four Peaks. After some discussion on the best lunch spot we pretty much nailed the landing and found the best spot along the trail :D

After lunch and a brew we continued on the traverse taking in the ever changing views of Four Peaks and the valley expanse of Roosevelt Lake below. Eventually we made the Four Peaks Trail #130 and Oak Flat Trail #123 junction where the trail drops down quickly. Once on Oak Flat you soon realize how nice the Four Peaks Trail really is. Oak Flat is steep but fortunately not too rocky and we made good time to the bottom.

Great hike...stellar loop....can't say enough about the Four Peaks Trail :)
