This was originally planned to be an alternate route up to Pinto Peak. We started at 6 am and it was nice and cool at the Miles TH. Pinto Creek is still flowing but easy to cross. The first two miles of Cuff Button trail have been cleared and leveled. When we started the off trail route we ended up east of the route and topped out on Peak 5273. From Peak 5273 we made our way to Peak 5503. The route from Peak 5503 to Pinto Peak looked rough so we opted to return back to Cuff Button trail. We saw a few ruins along the way and went through so thick brush in route. The posted route to Pinto Peak is the best option as this one ends up adding more off trail which is very thick and very steep at times. The light cloud cover was enough to keep the hike cool and we finished before 12 pm. Apparently there were some turtle kryptonite plants along the track. Denny was hit with some allergies and pretty much passed out on the ride back. I hope you're feeling better Denny.
