This was another great day of hiking in the beautiful, rugged, mysterious, and underrated Goldfield Mountains. Tracie the Intrepid was unable to go today, so I managed to get two other suckersadventurous hikers to go with me.

Starting at the Willow Canyon TH, we did a lasso loop hike that took us to Pedestal Arch, the Razorback, and to Triple Arch. We started out on a series of "unofficial" trails culminating with the Packsaddle Trail; from there we went off-trail to Pedestal Arch, following a track that @chumley posted a while back. From Pedestal Arch, we went to the Camo Tanks using a track that @CannondaleKid did a couple of years ago. Just before getting to the Camo Tanks, we climbed up to Razorback following the track that @hikerdw posted a couple of days ago. The climb up to Razorback was a fun one, and the views were great up there. Once we dropped to the Camo Tanks, we headed toward the Triple Arch in Black Glass Canyon, following routes that @joebartels, @The_Eagle, and @trekkin_gecko had previously done, although I went a bit west of their routes. Once we left Black Glass Canyon, we were in a sandy wash for a bit, and then we went through Rough N Ready Canyon to make our way back to the TH.

After the rains last week, there was some water in both Black Glass Canyon and Rough N Ready Canyon -- the water was nice to see, although in a couple of places it was bit challenging to get around the water.

It was another great day to be in the Goldfields!
