1st trip
My original plan today was Harquahala, but I didn't feel like driving back across Phoenix again, so I decided to stay close to home today. Then I had four chocolate donuts for breakfast, so hiking was necessary. Started from the Pyramid trailhead, and then took Gila west, paralleling Bursera, up to the saddle. At the saddle, I turned north and went up the ridge directly toward the top of the Ruins trail and National. Very steep and slow going through that little section, with a lot of loose rock, but it was okay. I certainly wouldn't want to go downhill on that, but uphill was doable. I met up with the Ruins trail just short of National, then east on National, then down Lost Mine and back to the trailhead. Nothing spectacular, just enough to loosen up the legs and back muscles. Nice day, plenty of people out on the main trails, not too many where I was most of the time.
