I visited the top of Pk 3804 again (4th time up there).
Some books refer to Pk 3804 and Pk 3585 (next door) as “The Twins”, and from North Scottsdale, they do look similar. (The Twins are the third and fourth bumps south of Thompson Pk).

I went up Pk 3804 via the steep, unofficial, (and disappearing) trail, and bushwhacked down the east-southeast edge. The off trail down was slow due to steepness, and scree. I ended up on a ridgeline that leads to the Western Loop Trail, and from there I took a couple “No-Name” Trails and finally the Dixie Mine Trail back to the TH.

There are some new trails in the Fountain Hills Preserve. They have no signage yet, but it’s rather easy to determine where they go and what known trails they connect to.

I saw no hikers all day. Too bad for them, as it was a great day to hike.
