I had been wanting to do Malapais again, so a small group of us headed up there today.

We did an out-and-back hike, and it was a great day to be outside.

We took a good use trail up to Fragile Arch Saddle, then went to the 2750 Saddle, then went through a ravine, before dropping into a wash. We took the wash aways, and then went off-trail up to the saddle below Peak 3509. Then we followed the standard route up to the top of Malapais.

I did not realize it beforehand, but the Woodbury Fire burned a lot of the vegetation on top of Malapais, which made hiking on top of Malapais much easier than it was before. There were a couple of places that were like the old Malapais, i.e. they were choked with bristly vegetation. Fortunately the views atop Malapais are as good as ever!
