We did a car shuttle and started at the top of the Bug Springs Trail. The first part of the trail was still snowy in spots and quite slick on the trail where the snow had melted and refrozen. I wouldn't want to do it going downhill. We were soon out of the snow and enjoyed a beautiful day with great views of the Mt Lemmon Highway, Blackett's Ridge and Thimble Peak from a different direction. At the crest of the hill (kept saying we were going downhill, but it sure went up a lot) we enjoyed a mini "Heart of Rocks" area with great views as well as rock formations along the trail. This was a great trail and one we'll do again. It would be too hot as weather warms since there is little to no shade on the low end.
