The goal was to check out Miles Ranch, West Pinto trail, Campaign trail and hike up Pinto Peak again. It was 50 degrees at the start and stayed nice for most of the hike. The Miles Ranch area is good but about a mile down West Pinto trail the burn takes over. I could followed most of West Pinto but there are a few washed out areas where you lose the trail. The Campaign trail is burned but not bad to follow at this point. There are several ruins exposed next to the trail and some vegetation is starting to regrow. The thicket off trail near Pinto Peak is easier to get through but everything is black. I looked like a coal miner after making it through. From Pinto Peak I decided on exiting the opposite ridge and connecting to the Cuff Button trail. The ridge was open but steep in spots. The area looks different and I thought I stopped at a ruin Denny and I went to a few years back. It turns out is was a different ruin on the same ridge about two hundred yards away. The Cuff Button trail was okay to follow until about a half mile approaching West Pinto trail. The trail is washed away there. I saw cairns down lower and followed those but they were from the old Jerky Spring trail that parallels Cuff Button in that area. The erosion is evident and will continue for a while so time will tell.
