Bruce and Joe put together a nice loop/tour in the heart of the Sierra Anchas. We started in Reynolds Creek at Cienega Spring. On the upper part of Reynolds we started to see some good color. A little before peak but still a good show. We topped out and then dropped down to Murphy Ranch trail head and took short break. Then we followed some road and hit Aztec Peak visiting the rock loungers on the summit with views and break for lunch.
After lunch we had some off trail but was relatively easy crossing Center Mountain eventually picking up trail again. Once across Center Mountain we dropped down to Lucky Strike Trail and followed road back to Cienga Spring. Great views on Aztec Peak and Center Mountain then color in Reynolds made it a well rounded hike with a little of everything
