1st trip
Enjoyed a good exercise hike today in reasonable temperatures without a long drive. Parked near the gate for Bulldog Canyon off Usery Road, started on Maricopa Trail a steady climb in a soft sandy wash , only met one biker heading down and one hiker at the Pass Mountain Loop Trail Junction, this part of the loop trail has the best tread on the loop as opposed to the rockier south and east portions. Wind Cave had some traffic but not too bad probably due to it being a weekday. Went up above the “cave “ to the high point , fortunately not as many bee’s today so was able to enjoy a snack and rest break there. Upper half of the Wind Cave Trail was shaded but still didn’t feel too warm even on the way back down the unshaded lower part. Decided to pick up the pace and did some limited jogging heading back to the Maricopa Trail. Lizards were plentiful no other wildlife spotted.
