This was long overdue. Can't believe I'd never gotten around to this loop before.

We did this loop of the Hot Loop Trail to Jack's Canyon Trail, going CCW. If I did it again, this is the direction to go. The lower sections of this loop, were busting in flowers. The most Owl Clover I've seen.

The Hot Loop trail is in mainly great shape through Horse Mesa. As others have mentioned, the north end of the trail can use a trimming, but it's short lived. The views of Woods Canyon from Horse Mesa and the climb, were the highlight for me.

It was almost chilly while we took lunch in the shade of a large Juniper on top of the Mesa.

Dropping down on Jacks Canyon Trail from the top was a bit steep and loose, but once again did not last long. The trees and breeze kept the temps nice throughout this hike.

We had the pleasure of parking on I-17 on the way home for an hour because of an accident.
