1st trip
The Young Man's trail intersects the Guadalupe Ridge trail above Hidden Valley. At least that's what the trail is called on satellite view.

Some friends recently moved to Ahwatukee, and have never been to Hidden Valley. This hike is a recon trip for me to later show them the quickest way from their house up and over Guadalupe Ridge to Hidden Valley.

Young Man's trail is short and kinda steep like most of the north/south connector trails on South Mountain. It isn't too far east from Carona de Loma East. Similar trail but seemed a little nicer than my memory of CDL East.

I started hiking from the Pima Canyon trailhead up Marcos de Niza/Guadalupe Ridge to Young Man's. Took YM down to Desert Classic and beyond towards my friends house. Returned back up Young Man's, then west on Guadalupe Ridge a bit before descending into Hidden Valley, then back on the National.

I didn't get started hiking until 0730 so by the end of the hike it was getting warm. Took some pano pics for Kelly now that I know how to. Not many people out by the time I got back to the trailhead. :)
