Potato Patch Loop is in the 100 hikes book so I thought I'd give it a go. Hualapai peak is a county high point so I figured I'd throw it in as well. Some of the previous Hazer's made it 3 peaks so what the heck.
The Ranger station has a self pay station, if it's not open. They even had a little map :) . I hiked the loop counter clockwise. the trail is in great shape. As the loop goes I hit Aspen Peak first. Nice views. Second peak up was Hayden. I wasn't paying enough attention and wound up at Tipton Overlook by mistake. Hayden is pretty much all road. If your on a trail your probably going the wrong way. Hayden is the 1 with all the towers. Hualapai Peak was the last peak and the toughest summit. The hike is up a road also. The road gets more wore down as you top out but never worse then a good trail. I tried to summit on the east then south before I remembered I had a track loaded for this summit ](*,) Blood donated on those 2 attempts . The north side is the ticket. From there you take the road back to your Potato Patch Loop junction and finish your loop. Going this way even gives some north side shade. The trail even had a couple benches for breaks and a couple emergency storm shelters. I enjoyed this one. The aeg is tricky. I felt it more the next day. :) :y:
