Got to the Pima-Dynamite TH about 6:20am and had to wait 10 minutes for the gate to open. Started out on the Powerline Road #1 Trail, then did a clockwise loop going northeast on the Hawknest Trail, then took the Basalt Ridge, Upper Ranch, Hackamore and Latigo Trails back. I had originally planned to do a figure 8 crossing over on one of the unmapped trails, but I forgot about that along my hike in. It would have added only another mile at the most.

Everything is very green right now, and the vegetation is also very high, with pretty big stalks at the base. Could be a lot of fuel come wildfire season. Lots of wildflowers out as well, many patches of poppies once the sun hits.

Mostly bikers out, and trail runners. Hikers don't seem to venture far from the trailheads. The hikers I saw were all within a couple miles of the Pima-Dynamite or the Brown's Ranch trailheads.

A girl hiking the other way along the Upper Ranch Trail had a black dog that she was letting wander up ahead of her and off trail. On the last mile of my hike, two bikers had him on a leash, riding slowly, asking everyone they passed if they lost a dog.

Finished before 11am, the majority of the miles today were trails I had never hiked before.
