Short hike today to finish up a middle section of the 50 Year Trail. Also a redo of a section of the 50 Year Trail I did two days ago to get a GPS route for the 50 Year Bypass Trail. Took a return route through Sutherland Wash to try and locate some Petroglyphs that are supposedly in that area. No luck in finding them, but then I didn't spend a lot of time looking. Last Monday I hiked the South end of the 50 Year Trail heading north. Once at the Catalina State Park Boundary I followed the sign that indicated the 50 Year Trail continued following the road. At this sign was another sign indicating a Bypass Trail, I didn't know what this was so I continued down the road. This road is extremely rocky and it appears the bypass trail is a new section of trail for the 50 year Trail created to be more biker friendly. I completed this section today so when I post a description for the 50 Year Trail I will have the correct route. The road route is .6 miles and the new biker friendly route is 1.3 miles. The GPS route for today's hike indicates 7.3 miles but .5 miles of it between the two sections of the hike were me driving to the next section of the hike. Can't count driving for hiking.
Couldn't stay out long today had to go in and pick up my camera that was in the shop being cleaned. Couldn't clean the innards of the camera from all the corrosion from the last 11 years of hiking so $1100.00 later I came home with a new Camera. To ease the pain I tell myself it was time to get a new one anyway.
