|I had never hiked to Robber's Roost, and I persuaded Tracie, my intrepid hiking partner, to accompany me on this hike, even though she had done it a couple of times. I followed the route posted by hikerdw on 11-17-2018 -- we started and ended at the Peralta TH, and then we did a clockwise loop by coming up on Carney Springs Trail and going back on the Bluff Spring Trail.|
We did not see anyone on the hike until we were past the Roost and got to Fremont Saddle. After that, there were a couple of people at Lonesome Pine, and then we saw a couple of small groups when we were on the Bluff Spring Trail not too far from the TH.
Robber's Roost was cool -- we spent some time there exploring some of the rocks, and climbed up through a chute -- Tracie called it a rabbit hole -- and looked at an arch and explored some more.
The views were awesome throughout this entire hike. For the most part I was able to follow the trails and the cairns, but hikerdw's GPS track bailed me out a few times!
