After high 90 temps in the valley, we had to take advantage of the 77 degree forecast. Jamaal and I started at the Lost Goldmine TH and headed west and up to Carney Springs trail and the hike/climb up up up.. Made it to the real saddle in about 1hr 15 mins and ran into a group already up there that were headed up the ridgeline. One dude was 77 years old! We hoped to be that awesome still at 77. We turned right and went into new territory for me. This was my favorite part of the hike and one of my favorite places in all of the Supes now. Totally reminded me of Sedona area. Actually a few times I had to remind myself where we were! It was a steady up hill around some really cool rock formations and hoodoos. The area had a great blend of cactus and also pine trees. We passed through several different small valleys on our way up to about 4000 ft. After a while we found the roost area no problem. Crawled all the way through to a hole in the rocks where we poked over the edge and had some lunch and roost juice(beer). It was cool to think about way back in the cowboy days and who the heck found this place and the history of the name, also. The hike over to Fremont was super easy and had some great views of Weavers and looking down to the hikers on Peralta Trail. Crossed over Fremont and onto more new hiking for us. The cave trail was definitely a fun alternative to Peralta. It was surprisingly easy to follow compared to what I have heard. We did get turned around once but only back tracked about 1/8 mile before we realized it. We barely looked at the map once, just to check mileage, otherwise it was fun just route finding on our own. I give this loop an A+ for sure. It had very diverse terrain and outstanding views the whole way.
