Started out at about 8:30 a.m. on a Friday morning after a day of rain. Had intended to do the Chochie Spring trail, but this seemed more interesting. The Ritz certainly is an eyesore at the beginning of the hike, but soon it's out of view. From footprints it looked like there was one person ahead of me and I didn't come across anyone else until on the Wild Burro Trail close to the trailhead (though the parking lot was overflowing by then). I found it to be a very easy route to follow except for when climbing down back into the wash (I didn't do the Alamo Springs portion). This might have been because I was still a bit rattled by my run-in with the javalinas. :scared:
I didn't find it to be a terribly interesting hike (the wash walking is not exciting), but due to its proximity to where I reside and some pretty areas, this could become something I do often just to keep in mediocre condition and get outside for a bit. Notably, both times I've been hiking here I've come across javalinas.
