Yeager Canyon Trail #28
6 years since Bruce and I hiked this one. The trail is very well maintained.

Gaddes Canyon Trail Two (Old) (added 2020-02-11)
Based on comments in nonot's [ triplog ] we hiked or paralleled this mythical 2 mile out-n-back. For sleuths' sake of ever figuring it out I moved the trailhead from FR501A to trail 502 which hikebot does have a track posted based on gov gis data.

Gaddes Canyon #110
Short leg to make the loop work. Never tire of this one.

Gaddes Canyon Two Trail #9037
Long standing fav, prefer up. Dry, no wildflowers.

Black Canyon Trail #114
Almost felt like cheating since we just hiked the nicest upper end. Columbine patch. Box Elders stood out with their bright translucent green leaves.

Offtrail Black & Burnt Canyons
1.5 mi portion we did on a 17 mi loop Aug `14. The most notable pools of water all day. Bring your own, this canyon travels easy from all the cow trails-of-use.

Ash Canyon Trail #539
Only 1.5 mi, perhaps the best part of it too.

Yeager Cabin Trail #111
Whopping 0.5mi of this gem. 9Lee linking at it's best!

Little Yaeger Canyon
Looked forward to this the most as somehow it never made the mix. Heading in I couldn't figure why Preston mentioned...
Reversing your route back down Little Yaeger Canyon is the most difficult option.
Crystal clear now. I barely made it down with lots of help. The sword was double edged as the guys spent the previous hour suggesting changing this final leg to a nearby trail... lol
I'd still go up this canyon since I forgot to keep an eye out for the Aspens. Forget descending until memory fades!

Synopsis
Enjoyed the loop once. Not itchin to do it again. Mingus is my fav so neva say never but I'd reverse it. Good to see Chums jump in on this one. 18% of the hike was breaks =)

One Columbine patch and a fair amount of raspberry in two canyons.
