I hadn't taken the kids out for a hike since New Year's Day, so before the weather gets hot, I decided to take them and check out Silly Mt., which I've never done before. It was a pretty nice hike, nothing too special, but close by and not crowded. It was pretty hazy day and cloudy, but still pretty warm. We took the Palo Verde Trail up to the first junction and then took the Old Mine Trail back down and around and up again to the peak, then looped to the east and back to the parking lot, finishing up with the botanical interpretive trail. The kids were getting kind of tired and gassed making it up to the peak, but then were much better on the way back down and on the level parts. there's a few more trails here I haven't done yet, so there's reason to return with the kids.
