Awesome rock formations to admire on this route plus it allowed hiking in solitude despite seeing all the parking lots off Peralta road by midday to be packed, including Carney Springs, Goldmine, Peralta and Peralta overflow, guess everybody wasn’t shopping. Able to park at Peralta trailhead about 0800 started on Goldmine Trail noticed about .5 miles from the junction for West Boulder Trail a new Wave Cave Trail sign .The crowd was heading toward Wave Cave, passed by the only hiker I saw on West Boulder trail, caught up to 2 backpackers ,one with a 52 lb pack, that I managed to pass,I was carrying a couple of extra pounds myself just not in the pack. Only 2 hikers at Robbers Roost, explored some of the nooks and crannies above the Roost, went by the wave with no cave,then observed a very busy Peralta Trail on the way down, helped confirm my decision to use Cave Trail,met no one on it, added a little appendage to the Loop by taking Don’s Trail to Lost Dutchman. Neither water nor wildlife to report.When I returned to the parking lot the register had several pages filled out from today.
