1st trip
It had been almost 2 years since I had been on the Ironwood Ridgeline, so I decided that Super Bowl Sunday morning would be a good time to go once again.

Starting from the Meridian TH, we went a short distance on the Bulldog Saddle Trail, and then went east on the Meridian Mystery Trail. After going a ways we went on what is now a decent social trail up to a saddle below the Ironwood Ridgeline. For whatever reason there were a few painted arrows on the social trail, providing a reminder of how close to Phoenix we were.

Once on the ridgeline, we went to the summits of Peak 3108, Temptation Peak, and Peak 3125. Peak 3108 is an easy walkup, but there was a bit of climbing on the other 2 peaks. We descended Peak 3125 to the north and then climbed up to Peak 3163, which is a fun climb.

Then we went off-trail to the west side of Peak 3125, and followed a social trail down to Bulldog Saddle. Instead of going directly back to the TH, we followed the Peak 3004 Loop to the north of Peak 3004 and then up to Pass Mountain Saddle. From there we went back to the TH.

We didn't see anyone on the hike until we got down to Bulldog Saddle. From Pass Mountain Saddle back to the TH we encountered a number of people, which is to be expected on a weekend. A couple of them had boom boxes, but at least there were no painted arrows.
