1st trip
Started at the Upper Haunted Canyon trail head and hiked Haunted Canyon #203 to the dirt tank, then up a short ways on Paradise #271 to the saddle, off trail across Government Hill to pick up Bull Basin #270 (thanks for the insight on Government Hill Lee) to West Pinto #212 to Miles trail Head and closed it out with a short road hike on 287A back to the truck.

Government Hill has been on my list for a while so the hike across it was the highlight. Fairly easy off trail hiking and route finding until we closed in on the Bull Basin trail where the vegetation got very thick and prickly. I regretted wearing shorts in that area and the during the hike down Bull Basin which has all but closed up with brush.

Only saw one other pair of hikers at Miles trail head as we were making our way to the road. Nippy at the start but warmed up towards the end of the hike.

A short dialogue of our conversation while hiking up Haunted Canyon. (Me) I am looking forward to the hike across Government Hill. (Ryan) So we are going off trail on this hike. (Me) Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that :D

Great hike.
