We went to Robbers Roost taking a clockwise loop: starting at the Peralta TH we went SW on Peralta Road to the Lost Goldmine TH; then took the Lost Goldmine Trail to the Carney Springs Trail, which we took up to West Boulder Saddle; from there we took a use trail over to the Roost; then we dropped down to Fremont Saddle; from there we went to Lone Pine, and then went down through Barks Canyon via the Upper Barks Canyon Loop
to the Bluff Springs Trail; lastly we took the Bluff Springs Trail back to the TH.
The Roost is always fun. We went up the chute on the south side of the roost and climbed out of the rabbit hole to get out of the roost. There is an arch up there that is worth checking out.
I enjoyed the dexcent down Barks Canyon -- it is very scenic and you avoid the crowds on the Peralta Trail. I got the idea for the descent from a hike that @hikerdw did awhile back.
