My daughter wanted to do a big (for a 10 year old) hike, so I figured Black Top Mesa would fit the bill. We got started around 0815 and headed east on Second Water, then south on Black Mesa. By the time we reached Dutchman, temps were feeling pretty warm. East on Dutchman then up Bull Pass. Took our time on the steepest parts, and reached the summit of Black Top Mesa around lunchtime. Short snack break, then headed back down. Took Dutchman all the way back to the trailhead to complete the loop. My daughter was tired at the end, but had fun. Didn’t see many people today. Water everywhere, lots of green, and plenty of muddy trail, but we managed to keep our feet dry. We finished up just after 1700. Fun day with my daughter, and nice to see her complete a bigger hike.
