Took the harem out to do the Tramonto Peaks loop. It's been awhile for me and it looks like not many others have been using the trail. Parked in the community park, amidst the numerous no trespassing signs. The trail from the parking lot over to the road is almost non-existent. Crossing the road the official trail is faint at spots but easy to follow up to the saddle. We did an out and back to the northern peak. The trail over to the eastern peak is in pretty good shape to the split, and then super faint to the top. Enjoyed the view from the top and watched the 15 hot air balloons from sunrise making their descent into the neighborhood below. We continued our east and met up with, what's left of, the old jeep road that takes you the rest of the was to the base of the hill. We had to climb over a new looking gate to meet up with the east end of the Tramonto trail. Following the Tramonto trail west back to the saddle split proved challenging. Most of it is just gone. Gallydoll kicked a cholla into her leg, which was quite difficult to remove. Hard to imagine the residents at Tramonto don't take advantage of this gem right in their backyard. It funny that the unofficial trails are in better condition than the official trail.
