A good day to hike Geronimo Head.

Got to the trailhead just after 7 and were on the trail heading up by 7:30. One other car parked. The trail to the arch is steep but clearly marked with a good tread. Across the two saddles, clearly marked, is in pretty good condition with just a few areas that have been eroded by the recent rains. At the ravine bed we caught up to two hikers taking a breather, where we crossed the bed and proceeded up to the ridgeline to the west. The route up is very well marked and easy to follow, and once on the ridgeline it was pretty easy off-trail hiking over to 3479 where we signed into the register. From there we dropped down and hiked across a lower ridge to 3311, the lower leg of "L" Canyon were we had lunch. After lunch we hiked back across the lower ridge and then up to 3509, and then found a good place to make our decent down and back to the trailhead. Great hike with fantastic views. We'll be back for sure.
