1st trip
My wife and I did an easy hike today at MMRP. Her knee has been bothering her lately and she chose this hike to test the effectiveness of her knee rehab.

We did a lollipop-loop of Escondido, Cinch, Scenic, Pemberton, Scenic, Cinch, and back on Escondido.

After turning off onto the Scenic from the Pemberton, I chose to hike the wash which parallels the current trail. Prior to circa 2003, the Scenic Trail followed the wash that I hiked today. However, equestrians and cyclists got tired of riding in the wash and created a nice singletrack next to the wash. I showed this trail to Ranger Crash one day and he liked it so well that the trail ended up being rerouted to follow this impromptu trail.

It was fun hiking that wash again, though I'm quite happy that the hardpack trail is now the official trail, especially when riding my bike.

We saw several hikers and a lot of folks on bikes. We were especially surprised to see perhaps half a dozen bikes on ridgeline of the Scenic Trail. This area is somewhat rocky and typically does not get many cyclists.

We saw some blooming brittlebush on the drive over, but I don't think we saw a single flower on our hike, which is kind of unusual for this time of the year. We also were commenting on how brown the foliage is compared to last year.
