listed this hike under mohave trail because that was a destination
the mission today was to hike up the ridge from the first saddle on the connector trail
looked like it was a route over to the mohave trail and it was, although there were several options along the way
just up from the saddle, you can take the low road or the high road up and over what a local resident called "little mountain"
i took the high road, which included an needless ridgeline boulder scramble on top, having missed an obvious path to the right
went back to see where it was
then took another well defined social trail to the south end of what black toes has posted as "ridgeline 6", also confirmed as a scrambling route by the same local guy
since i wanted to connect with mohave, i chose not to do that today
yet another trip is in order to cover ridgeline 6
took mohave to peak 1788 again
was going to skip the high point, but that would be like walking right by goat hill on national without a visit
one of those nice spots where you might find some solitude in the city park
started back on 202, but went up yet another social trail back to the end of ridgeline 6
this time took the low road around little mountain
had fun checking out some new stuff, and still don't have everything covered in this area
a side benefit was a decent helping of aeg in only a 3.5 mile hike
posted my route, but need to refine the perfect loop and also find a topo that shows all of the social trails
32nd and lincoln is a convenient trailhead, and these give me some additional options from there
