Roger is back :o so needed something different that we could explore and hadn't been on, I remembered when we did Crazy Horse Loop back in 15 that we crossed a bike trail on the west side of Usery Peak and discussed checking this out for a future hike. This ended up as a HAZ meets up with PinkBikes combination of Trails :scared:. Started at the TH and worked our way up the wash and up to the ridge on the right side and met up at PinkBike's L'Alpe d'Huez Trail ( Single Black Diamond ) which is the same as our Usery Peak Trail, this takes us up just past the top of the old Mine, we then follow the tire track off to the right, this is the start of their Goat Trail ( Double Black Diamond ) :o Be very careful here, it is very loose gravel and steep in spots, we worked our way around to the North and West till we met up with Cactus Garden Trail ( Single Black Diamond ). For any Biker to get this far :worthy: : king : : queen : I have to admire them. The next segment is running North to South west of Usery Peak and called Cactus Garden and the one we crossed last year. Got to the end of CG and made a left up Microwave DH ( Double Diamond ) very steep and rocky. Part way up this Trail we came across a very nice Memorial to a loving Father, had a bench there so it was a nice place to rest and reflect on our family relationships and hope we will be as well thought of. Made it up to the Microwave Tower and the road leading up to it. followed this road down aways and cut up thru the nearest saddle and followed game trails back to the TH. Great hike close by, and interesting enough to return.
