Chris invited me on this cool loop. Wally joined us at the trailhead.

The hike was a little more challenging than I expected, but it was an awesome way to spend a Saturday for sure.

The hike up the Bull Basin side seemed never-ending, lots of switchbacks at the top. The first part of this trail was along Rock Creek and was really beautiful. Lots of water flowing in the creek. Once we started up (and up and up), the forest gave way to manzanita. Wally pointed out a few ruins and found a good number of sherds along this trail. We missed the unknown cowboy grave and I told Wally I will have to ding his Trip Advisor review now…ha ha.

There was some overgrowth at the top of Bull Basin. It got a little hairy in there. Once everything blooms and gets leaves, it will be a much harder path to navigate. The manzanita was blooming and had a very fragrant flower for sure.

The back side of the loop was steep at the start, but eventually followed Haunted Canyon creek. That was flowing nice all along the trail. Heading back up the Paradise side was a steep climb up as well. I was moving turtle speed up this portion. Wally and Chris left me in the dust. I made pretty good time once gravity was on my side going down.

Paradise was really beautiful in the forested sections. The creek was running and there were little falls all along the path. It was flowing all the way to the road.

I finally made it down to the end and Chris was driving up from the Miles TH and spared me the last ¼ mile walk up the road.

A very cool area in the Eastern Supes for sure!
