Started out at Ramsey Vista Campground and hiked to the Ramsey Canyon Preserve where my ride awaited. The comfort springs trail is nice, few slick spots as you're hiking down the last leg of the trail into Ramsey Canyon, but overall a very nice and cruisy single track. Once down into the canyon I made a right heading northeast along the Hamburg trail. This pathway is also in great shape with excellent signage. Being ahead of schedule I slowed down quite a bit through the canyon to take in the smells and fall color of the canyon. You'll get about a mile of solid fall color until the trail begins it's short climb out and then back down to the Ramsey Canyon Preserve. Managed to scare a pretty big sow and her cub, twice (pretty sure it was the same bear/cub) on my hike. Other than the black bear, lots of Coues White Tail and squirrels and I think either a coyote or a fox.

For the most part my hike was enjoyed in solitude, saw one other person coming down into Ramsey Canyon as I was exiting, maybe 5-10 people doing the loop in the preserve, and probably 20+ congregating near the Conservancy Center and complaining about the 'freezing cold' 55 degree temps.

Good hike, wish it were about three to four miles longer and I had a bit more time to spare. There is always next year.

At the higher elevations it's done. The maples are faded/brown or it went from green to drop (see photos). Down in Ramsey Canyon things are prime, good time to go.
