Met up with Matt at the Ramsey Vista Campground around 0745 and headed up to Carr. Breezy to start, and almost cool. The trail is rocky at first, but a reasonably pleasant incline, and eventually the rocks give way to a nicer tread. At the turn to head up to Carr Peak, which is now signed, it gets a lot steeper. We took our time heading up to the summit, fighting wind the entire way. Oddly enough, there was almost no wind at the summit, and the views were nice, but hazy.

We continued along Carr over to the Crest Trail at the top of Miller Canyon and headed over to Miller Peak, regaining all of the elevation we'd just lost. The Crest Trail was warm at times when the breeze was blocked. Breezy again when we turned up to Miller. Nice lunch break at the top, and very few bugs. After that, we headed back north on Crest over to Bear Saddle, where we turned onto Hamburg Trail.

The top part of Hamburg was a steep descent, but nice. The lower half wasn't as steep, and had some running water. I like the vegetation in Wisconsin Canyon, and always tell myself I need to head back out here in the fall. Turned onto Comfort Springs trail and began our uphill hike back to the trailhead. Luckily, it's not steep, and seemed to go by quickly.

Saw 8 other hikers--6 in the first half of the hike, 2 near the end. Nice loop, with plenty of up and down, and the breeze generally kept it from feeling too warm. The road in is rough, but there was a Honda Accord at the trailhead. I would not recommend a sedan on that road, but I guess it's doable. Good to see Matt again, and an enjoyable hike.

About 10 gallons of clear water at the springbox. A lot more running water in the next drainage to the east of Comfort Spring, just below the trailhead.
