I decided to go out and do this hike again that I had done a week or so ago.

We started at the Una del Oso TH, and walked down FR 112 about 1/2 mile to the Sixshooter Trail; then we took Sixshooter up to Pinal Peak; went over to Ladder Rock; took the Pioneer Trail down to Pioneer Pass; then took East Mountain Trail-Toll Road Trail-Una del Oso Trail back to the TH.

While on the East Mountain Trail a couple of us went off-trail to the East Mountain Summit. This time we went up and back on the west slopes of East Mountain. It was steep, but I think that this route up to East Mountain was preferable to what I did previously.

There were great views from Pinal Peak, Ladder Rock, and East Mountain, plus the weather was super; so this was a very enjoyable hike.

There was lots and lots of bear scat on the Toll Road Trail; in some places it looked like an Oso family reunion.

The trails are mostly in really good condition -- this is a nice hike that will give you a good workout.

We saw 3 white tailed deer on the Six Shooter Trail, and 2 tarantulas on the East Mountain Trail.

There were a few maple trees still with some fall color on the Six Shooter Trail, but they were past their prime, and there weren't very many of them. There are lots of green leaves on oaks, sycamores, and others; perhaps there will be a bit more fall color from them in the coming days.
