Barnum Rock can also be for hikers since it's easy to get up there without ropes. I parked at the San Pedro Vista trailhead and hiked up the Incinerator ridge trail going completely around the backside of this rock. Then, I did the easy bushwhack up. There were some cairns and a faint trail in some areas. It was possible to see Rose Canyon lake from the top!

I did a solo hike out to a peak I've never been to before. Also wrote a guide for this one because it's a very nice area, labelled on various topo maps but it wasn't mentioned on any websites anywhere. I saw a beautiful king snake near the point where the butterfly trail meets the ridge going to Butterfly peak. Then, I saw a few butterflies on the peak which must be appropriately named!

Hiked the Brown canyon loop with Brian and Tim starting at about 8 am. The was my final peak (out of 17) from the Tucson mountains within the Southern Arizona Hiking Club list. The morning was a comfortable temperature but it got warmer by about Noon. From the very top we were able to see the summit of Wasson peak in the distance, along with a few other nearby mountains. We could see some of the buildings on Kitt Peak from the summit. We saw a non-venomous garden snake on the trail near the campground area. We saw one other solo hiker on the entire trail/mountain.

Hiked Sombrero starting around 7:40 am with Brian and Dave. Dave's first time hiking Sombrero. We all enjoyed it but it got a bit hot on the way down. No regrets though.

Hiked Tower peak starting at about 7 am with Tim T. The morning temps were nice in the 60s and 70s. We hiked to the same saddle as last week when we hiked to Bushmaster peak. The ascent to Tower peak was a bit shorter than Bushmaster, but the grade was steeper. Near the top, we didn't find many cairns but we were able to find the correct way to the top through a notch. At the peak we had some nice views all around (Bushmaster peak, Peak 4063, Golden Gate mountain, Bren mountain, and many other peaks in the distance). On the peak, we had a few wasps that were doing big circles around us like fighter planes trying to bomb a target. One got right in my face, so I swatted it to the ground and stunned it, but didn't kill it. After a while, we gave the bees back their space ;-). We saw our friend Brian's log entry from about 1 month before.

On the way down we went over to peak 4063 since it was nearby. I went up to the top and signed the log again. Tim wasn't comfortable doing the last 6 feet of climb on the rock. Next time we may need to bring a rope for extra safety. There's one section near the top that has a bit of exposure and could be dangerous for non-climbers.

I did this solo hike after hiking Tower peak with Tim and I greatly under estimated the distance and time it would take. Twin Hills West (3,330 feet elevation) is located just East of the Southern end of Camino de Oeste, but can't be hiked directly from that road because private property blocks access, however, there's a way around from the South side. Twin Hills East (3,305 feet elevation) is along the same ridgeline going East. I accessed these peaks by taking the Yetman trail to the Bowen trail to the Hidden canyon trail. I saw a few people on the Hidden canyon trail. Many of them come from the Starr Pass resort area. After taking the Hidden canyon trail to a certain point, I needed to bushwhack North to a saddle between the East and West hills. Taking this route, I needed to cross a few small canyons. Upon reaching the saddle / ridgeline, the hike was a bit easier. The hike to the East peak was quite a bit easier, which I did first. Going to the West peak required a lot of up/down and there were areas near the top that were very steep. From the top of both peaks, there were some nice views of the houses below, Starr pass resort in the distance, and the whole city of Tucson in the distance. I found and signed registries at the top of both peaks. Thanks to Paul Carpentier for placing these logs.

Note: Lat/Lon marker was placed on Twin Hills East. To get to Twin Hills West, just follow the ridgeline over to the high point on the West side.

Our original plan was to hike the 5 mile jeep road up and down to the peak. Upon driving to the trailhead, Brian and I were stopped by Tribal security and we told we needed to request permission from the district office which was about 10 miles down the road. We then drove to the district office and they gave us a 2 phone numbers of local tribe leaders who were in charge of the access to that trail. We didn't have cell service out there and couldn't call so we decided to simply hike 5 miles up and down the paved road to make the hike about equal to what we would have hiked on the trail. In the end, our roundtrip hike was measured at 10.37 miles. We made great time on the road and made it to the top by about lunchtime. The observatory was closed at this time but we were still able to take some photos of the telescopes, buildings and other equipment. We had our lunch at a picnic table at the main parking lot for Kitt Peak observatory and were not allowed to proceed any further so we have to head down from this point. Along the hike were great views of Baboquiveri peak, what we believed was Coyote peak and mountains in the far distance.

Later when I had better cell service, after hiking, I called the tribal member (Michael) and he said he would be glad to give us permission on a future date. He said the main reason they ask people to register is so they know they are not border crossers, and also for safety. He said there have been accidents/injuries in the past. He told us that several years ago a hunter was bit by a rattlesnake in some of the remote areas and didn't survive. He also mentioned that there were 2 known mountain lions out there, but knowing they are all over the Catalinas we didn't think there was any real danger, especially in the daytime, and knowing that we should always be aware of our surroundings.

Hiked 2 numbered peaks from Molino Basin area.

Peak 5166: Started at Molino Basin and did a solo hike. High temp in this area was 82 and it was moderately windy and very windy at the peak. It was a bit hard to find the trail because someone apparently blocked it with a lot of dead wood, which I didn't discover until the last minute of the descent. On the way up, I ended up bushwhacking to a certain point and ran into a pretty good trail. Then, I followed the trail to the peak. The peak was a relatively small area with no trees, but there were some nice views all around. There was a log at the top which showed that I was the only person to summit in the previous 3 weeks.

Peak 5389: This peak is also known as Molino North. I summitted this peak after peak 5166 (Molino South) on the same day. There must have been a better way up this. I end up bushwhacking from the West side of the fence on the South side of this peak, which was pretty messy and steep in some areas. But the peak was very nice. There were several oak and juniper trees, which provided some nice shade while I had my lunch. I found a registry in a rectangular Christmas tin ;-) on top of a huge rock on the West side of this peak. It appeared that nobody came up to this peak since November 2021, six months ago! Based on the bushwhack I did, I can understand why. On the way down, I found a slightly better route, but it still was a bushwhack the entire way. I did see cairns in a few areas but often times it was just 1 small rock on a huge rock and many of these cairns were questionable. The cairns I did see were spread far apart and not very helpful. If I had more time I would have mapped out a better route and placed some cairns where needed.

I started my hike at Molino Basin because I also hiked peak 5166 and 5389 early on this same day. It was quite a long hike doing all 3 on the same day, but I don't have any regrets. I'm preparing to hike Mt Whitney in July and need some longer training hikes. If you are only looking to summit this peak, it would be recommended to start from the Gorden Hirayabashi campground area, which is about 2.5 miles closer than the Molino Basin trailhead. Anyway, from where I started, I took the Arizona trail to the Gordon Hirayabashi campground area and turned South at the Soldier Canyon trail junction. I found that both trails are maintained pretty well. After being on the Soldier canyon trail for about 10 minutes only, it was necessary to take a branch heading to the East which eventually circled around to a different ridgeline and followed the ridge out to this peak. The peak was also known as Babad Do'ag peak, which I learned when I saw the registry at the top. I believe this peak is at least 1/2 mile away from the official end of the Babad Do'ag trail. Looking to the West (and down) was Soldier Canyon, which I've hiked before, but never made it to this peak up until today. There were a few nice oak trees near the summit and excellent views of the city below.

Note: My total time and distance stats are based on starting from the Molino Basin campground area.

Hiked with Brian and Tim starting at about 7:15 am - Bushmaster peak and peak 4063. Both peaks were accessible from the same main trail starting at the top of Gates pass. The trail was very good and we only needed to bushwhack small sections to get to the top of 4063 and other points of interest. The high temp today was 88 but Tucson temps were between 60 and 85 the entire time we were out there. We finished hiking around 2 pm but our real "moving time" was only 2 hrs 50 minutes.

**Sadly the stone house partway up the hill had a lot of paint, graffiti, thanks to some jobless criminal THUGS. Absolutely a f*king eye soar! Install cameras and jail these EFFING SCUM!!!

Hiked 2 new peaks in the Tucson mountains with Brian and Tim, starting at 7:30 AM. Today's high was 93 but it was windy at higher elevation and felt much cooler in the morning. It felt a bit hot at lower elevation and on the Yetman trail for the final 45 minutes of the hike.

High temp of 68 at Summerhaven. Perfect weather for this hike. Very little wind and comfortable the entire way. Heard sounds of water a few places and saw some water flowing up close. I combined this hike with going up Marshall Gulch and going down Aspen.

Hiked this loop on a great day! High of 68 degrees and not a single cloud in the sky. Crossed the stream a few times going up Marshall Gulch. Don't remember seeing any water on the Aspen trail, but both were beautiful.

Hiked a nice loop in the Tortolita mountains with Jim this afternoon. We took Upper Javelina to Wild Mustang, and back on the Wild Burro. The high temp in Tucson was 80, but it felt a little cooler up here. There was also a nice breeze. This may be the last day we'll be able to hike in the afternoon in the high 70s. We have several weeks of hotter weather coming up. This loop may be good for an early morning hike.

Another great workout at Sombrero Peak with Jim. Saw that someone did trail maintenance which was nice, but also noticed that someone added blue paint as markers, which was quite annoying and not even necessary. The trail is pretty obvious and there were only a few cairns in a few places which was all that was needed.

Great cloudy day with a high temp of 78. Brian and I hiked up the Marshall Gulch trail, down Wilderness of Rock almost to the end. Took some time to bushwhack a little and explore some of the rock formations nearby. Hiked back up to the junction and then down the Aspen trail to complete the loop.

Hiked with Brian and Jim up Florida Canyon trail to Florida saddle at a pretty steady pace, then up the Sawmill trail toward Florida peak. Then had to bushwhack the final 1/8 of a mile to Florida peak. First time here. Amazing views, great workout, saw some patches of snow above 7,500 feet. We'll probably go back to Florida saddle for other destinations someday.

Couldn't have asked for a better day temperature-wise. Skies were clear with a lot of sun but the air temp felt about 60 at first and slowly rose. There were many patches of snow along the trail. The snow didn't feel wet at all - it was like crystalized ice. That area was badly burned from the Bighorn fire of 2020. There were patches of green pines so it will come back someday.
