I created this loop for a hike Bruce and I did March 8th 2014.
Rock Creek Trail #195 This one still rates pretty high in my world. Arizona Cypress keeps life in balance. Rock Creek is generally easier to follow than the trail. Once again catsclaw is not an issue for more than a few yards of the entire hike.
Bull Basin Trail #270 This one grew on me a tad so I upped it from a 2 to 3 rating. It has recently been cleared six feet wide from Rock Creek to maybe the saddle with Government. Still a shadeless toaster for long stretches.
Haunted Canyon #203 This loop utilizes the absolute best segment of this trail. Which is a large stand of cypress. Naturally I love it.
Tony's Backyard Due to overgrowth I downgraded this one to a 3 rating. Whoever traveled this trail on horse in past years is long gone.
Overall nice temps. Pants saved skin but too hot. I like this loop but will look to switch out Haunted for Spencer next round.
