Parked at San Gabriel and headed over to Young Man trail and up that. Hot, no breeze. Was going to do more of Guadalupe Ridge before dropping down, but I decided I didn’t feel like dying up there, so I dropped down at the eastern end of Hidden Valley and then down the wash. The wash is my favorite part of this loop. Up to San Gabriel Ridge, and down that to finish out the loop. Only saw a few people today.

Noticed that San Gabriel Ridge is now part of the new Guadalupe Perimeter trail, which seems to start west of the Helipad Trail off Desert Classic. It runs east through Warpaint, over to San Gabriel, up the ridge, then west to where I’m assuming it ends at the start of National. That’s a guess based off the park’s master plan (which they are barely following, even in this case) and the fact that the last sign post I saw at the top of San Gabriel points west, but I didn’t notice any others.

Also, it appears that Marcos De Niza trail now ends at that same signpost at the top of San Gabriel Ridge, instead of at the Beverly Canyon junction. Again, not quite following the master plan, but there’s a sign. Will update the Marcos guide and official route sometime in the next few days.
