Last minute decision to go here today, started at Meridian TH, before starting the loop took the short hop down Meridian road to begin on Meridian trail then Blevins , Vista, and Merkle trails finally joining the loop at pass mountain TH ,also added a short trip up toward the ridgeline at the Maricopa Trail junction . Poppies, lupine still blooming but drying out, may last a couple of more weeks,hedgehogs coming out now with there beautiful magenta colored flower. Saw a Gila monster in thick vegetation, no reasonable photo possible. Nice new restroom at the Pass Mountain Trailhead no more port a potties, would suggest a good workout by parking here and hike up to the wind cave via windcave trail and return on the gentle downhill slope on this portion of the loop trail , avoids the crowded small wind cave lot,adds about a mile to the wind cave hike. Cloud cover and breeze kept it cool until midday, trails were populated also until then , only saw 1 hiker on the way down from the saddle to the trailhead. Weekdays are nice as only came across 2 mountain bikers and that was on Blevins.
