Having nabbed one of the few parking spaces available, I left 40th St TH at 1600 and returned about two hours later. I never enjoy this hike. It's an ordeal but I needed the elevation and what trail is steeper than this one? An el gain of 572' in .41 mi, my GPS revealed. That's 1,362' per mile by my computation. The traverse is made even more miserable by trying to get traction on loose rock. Trail moderately busy. Found three others on summit.

Refuse to use the new "Dixie Peak" as trail name until I know more about it. For a public park to name anything using the controversial "Dixie" in this day and age is confounding.
