Girls day trip to visit the Doll Baby Ranch ruins. The hike gains ~1K feet in about 1.5 miles and its straight up an old jeep road. We started around 9:30am but it still felt hot walking up that road with little shade. Once we reached a gate, we went through (pls close the gate after!) took a left and continued hiking up to the top of the mesa. There was some mild scrambling towards the top but nothing too tricky.

The ruins were large and had a bit of a Circlestone vibe. There was a cool area that they seem to have made a door or a defense wall. There were tons of ocotillo blooming up there that were very pretty. We explored all around the area, enjoyed the views and then headed back down. We saw one couple nearing the top of the road on our way down. They had no GPS or map with them so we reassured them that they were on the correct path and to take a left at the gate. Also saw a family on horseback, but that was it! Just how I like it!

There were some helpful cairns that we left, but the pointless ones were disassembled. Honestly, the road walking was tedious and I wished it could have been driven but the gate was locked with a padlock. Very likely a one and done but always happy to get outside and see a new area!
