We were due for for some actual trails and a bit of mileage. The weather is perfect again for getting back to the BCT. With out a shuttle, we did an out and back.

We started in the dark and fumbled to find the the trail from where we parked. A beautiful sunrise and easy grades were a treat. We saw not a single sole on the section to Government Spring.

From Government Spring to just shy of Antelope Hill, this was my favorite section of trail. It was nice to be able to enjoy the views, without constantly looking at your feet.

We started seeing friendly mountain bikers on their way down. At Antelope Creek Road, we reversed course and started back down. Joe made friends with a couple of backpacking bikers.

Back at Hidden Treasure Mine TH, we took a few minutes to check out the small pond and huge tree that we've passed up dozens of times on our way to Crown King.

Hidden Treasure Mine has been gated off, so no exploring here. On the way back we checked out what we thought was an old cabin or structure of some kind. Turned out to be a larger mining claim that had seen quite a bit of activity in the past.

Not a lot of elevation gain but the most miles I've done in a few years
