1st trip
I decided to go out to Skyline again to hit the new Pyrite and Pyrite Summit Trails. I had a circuit planned out to hike a little over 10 miles. Once I got up to the high point of the Turnbuckle Trail, my knee started to bother me again. Actually it was more on the way down from the high point when I noticed it. So I decided to take a bailout option and head back to the trailhead a little earlier than planned. I still got 9 miles in, so it wasn't shortened by much. Hiked the interpretive Red Tailed Hawk Trail since I never did that before.

The views on the upper reaches of the Pyrite Trails are very nice, especially to the west and north. Very well built trails, hoping they add more.

I arrived at the TH at 6:30am to a packed parking lot. The first half mile there were a lot of people on the trails, but soon everyone was gone as the hot temperatures arrived early in the day. When I got back to the lot, my car was one of about 3 or 4 left, probably that way since about 8am or sooner.
