having spent the night at lost dutchman state park, and having the entire day to hike, i wanted something a little longer than the group choice of siphon draw
black top mesa offers great views of weaver's needle and the surrounding superstition landmarks
got started on dutchman trail about 8:00 with cool enough temps and some cloud cover
hit bull pass trail and then up to the top from the saddle
spent a few minutes looking around
continued east on bull pass trail to take dutchman trail around all of black top mesa
all of this additional three or four miles is a bit overgrown
I like the section of dutchman's between palomino and black top mesa
thought about finishing on black mesa loop, but john and I did an out-and-back on it earlier this year, and it's not my favorite trail
returned on dutchman's even though I usually prefer a loop
saw maybe a dozen people along the way, and no one near black top mesa
had decent cloud cover until the last few minutes
nice to be out in the supes again
