Bye week for the Steelers, so I took Dmitri with me out for a quick morning hike. I wanted something close by and not too hard, so this looked like a good option. There were a few trails that I hadn't done before, so there was something new to explore. It had been already over 7 years since our last visit here, time flies.

We started on the Brittlebrush Trail and took that to the Superstition View Trail, then headed up to Old Baldy and looped around the smallerpeak on the Coyote Loop and Jackrabbit Trails. While we were on Old Baldy, I noticed trails to the east of the park on the flat area there. We headed down to that area, which joins the Silly Mountain trails at the junction of the Old Baldy and Crest Trails.

We followed those unmapped trails to where they ended on the sidewalks and then bushwhacked over the one hill to where I saw another trail on our way over. That trail headed south to a service road under the powerlines south of the park, so it seemed like the thing to do to just follow that back to the trailhead. The road were were on faded into a singletrack which meandered away from the powerlines and then went back to them, joining another service road, which took us back to the parking area.

Saw a few other hikers, but it wasn't crazy busy. Nice weather and nice to explore and discover some new trails.
