The original plan was to hike Oracle Ridge AZT section but snow the night before made Redington Pass a better option. First the drive to the start which is down a nasty dirt road to Italian Trap. A friend dropped us off there and then hiked the first 2 miles with us to where it crosses Redington Road. We parted ways there and headed across the rolling hills of Redington Pass.

With all the snow and rain the night before every drainage had some water. Area of The Lake near Belota Ranch Road had many flowing drainages all the way to the Agua Caliente crossing which was also flowing strong. Then the trail connects with an old road and heads over to La Milagrosa creek which also had good water. From there the trail heads up with the first significant climb of the day that tops out on a saddle over looking Molino Basin and Catalina Highway. We took a nice break here after the long climb.

After the break we headed down the switch backs to Molino Basin and crossing the highway to the campground. Again more water in Molino Basin area and then hiked up the last hill to Hirabayashi TH. A bit cold and windy but otherwise great hike and section of AZT!
