Its been over eight years since I hiked to Aztec Peak from the Abbey's Way Trail, as poor trail conditions past the orchard, had relegated this trail to just a quick stop for the dogs over the last several years. However, recent developments in trail maintenance compelled us to give the trail another try and see if we could reach Aztec.

The trail was in great shape for the first mile. After that there were some semi annoying patches of raspberry bushes to contend with and some moderate overgrowth. However, there were also some surprisingly nice stretches of trail still, so for most of us, the sections of overgrowth did not deter that much from the hike. We spent some time watching the dramatic clouds and inversions roll in from the summit and then headed down after an extended break. John chose to return via the road, we returned via the trail, which was considerably easier on the way back due to the downward direction of travel and the already trampled bushes.

The crew that adopted this trail and is currently clearing it deserves a lot of praise and I am grateful for their work. This is going to be a great upper Ancha hiking option again, when its completed.
