Got started a little after 0700 from Ramsey Vista and headed down Comfort Springs Trail. The trail was soft from recent rains, but not muddy. It’s a pleasant walk downhill, with nice views. At Hamburg Mine, we got onto Pat Scott Canyon Trail and started heading back uphill. Not too hot, but very humid.

At the Crest Trail, we headed north after a short break. At the end of the Crest Trail, we veered east, following the barbed wire fence. The off trail kind of sucks, the soil on the north side of the ridge is very loose and you sink into it. Following the top of the ridge is a vegetation nightmare. When I was here four years ago, the was a faint path on the north side of the ridge, but that has pretty much disappeared. Encountered one large, angry rattler not too far from the summit—the damn thing seemed to want to chase me for a moment while I circled wide around it.

Another break at the summit, then headed back down. Clouds were gathering by the time we reached the Crest Trail, and it was cloudy with frequent rumbles of thunder for the last five miles. The rain held off until we reached the trailhead. Fun hike, but I probably won’t bother with Ramsey Peak again.
