Route Scout Route Recorded  on Route Scout Popup | MapDEX
wanted some mileage without much elevation gain, since my right knee has been bothering me a bit this week
hadn't hiked from the new dynamite and pima trailhead yet, so thought this would work
john signed on last minute
we were early for the gate opening at 0541 and got going soon after
axle grease to hackamore to cone mountain trail
john wanted to hit a peak while in the neighborhood, and he led an off trail route up cone mountain, which was a new summit for me
i've been up most of the other north preserve peaks
returned via upper ranch, rustler and latigo trails
double digits but less than a thousand feet of gain
knee was fine
three new trails for me and nice to go from a new area
the best parts of the hike included cool temps, large healthy saguaros and ocotillos, and quite a few critters: harris hawks, a buck, a desert tortoise and a gila monster :)
thanks for coming along, john - fun morning

*just looked at an old triplog
guess i've been up here before :-k
