Visiting from the Northwest and not used to hiking in the heat! Started late at 8:45am after getting lucky with parking - the lot was full and we grabbed the last spot. Lots of people at lower elevation, but we were on our own after the Vista, and only met one person near the summit. Trail finding was difficult at times because of the burns, we lost the trail twice, and it does not look like it’s been used much after reopening. Hiking through the burns is a bit spooky, the ground is bare and the trees are leafless and charcoal black. There are several downed trees across the trails, but they did not present a big challenge. Also, there is no shade where the fire went through and a lot more of the hike was in direct sunlight. I was glad the little grove along the spring before the final accent to the junction with the Pima canyon trail is still there. There was no water in the spring, but the ground looked wet. The view from the ledge at the top is just as I remembered it from many years ago. We took our time on the way back carefully navigating rocks and loose dirt. We reached our cars just when it got dark enough that I considered turning my headlamp on. The hike was more challenging than I expected, probably because of the heat and the fact that the trail traversed many burned down areas.
