Nice loop very rocky for my knees. Took about about an 1.5 hours to walk the last 2.5mi from the saddle. But still feel coming down Peralta is easier on the knees than coming back on Bluff Springs.

Well finally did it. Want to get used to longer distances and this was in my area. I notice another trail towards the South of the Petersen which was unmarked. I think this will the the Estrella connector for the future Mountain Trail(Which is supposed to actually loop into the mountain)

Started up the Kiwanis up the National down the Pyramid. Then back up the Pyramid(grade seemed much like much of Quartz Peak) and back down the Kiwanis. Remindeds me of doing the Geronimo and Corona Trails without the rocks

Had three hours time limit. Hiked the Spur Cross and to Cave Creek trail. After going to the Cave Creek trail. To my disappointment it left the creek and ascended into the hills. No doubt it returns to the creek for several crossing but did not have time to go that far. No smakes but plenty of bees out.

Did Coldwater down the Petersen closest to the Mountain(trying to see if they started work on the Mountain Trail) nothing apparent. Then back up the Butterfield for a easy loop.

Started from the South Trail and hooked into the Goat Camp. Saw nobody coming up at least 20 people coming down before mile marker 2 coming up. No changes since last time I was up there

Perfect weather, saw only two other hikers. Thought about going up the National instead of Bajada but start too late. Still quite rocky on the west portion of the trail and Bajada still s@#. But glad to have gotten out there.

Seems like they may be adding a Mountain trail that actually reaches the Mountain part of their park boundary. Got to the 2nd high point in 28 min, pretty much coasted after that

Very nice loop. Went down the Corona(steep and very rocky). Desert Classic basically flat with some rolling hills. The upper portions of Telegraph and early portion of the National were a little steep but short lived, nice views of the valley while you walk of the National.

Very few people out. Nice way to get back into hiking after taking much of the summer off.

Thought it would be cooler,lol. First mile shaded flat to easy roling hills. Once past the little Granite trail intersection. This was the main portion of the climb. Rocky,exposed, more steep that Holbert but less than Squaw Peak(for the city dwellers) Once you make it up to the pass, it becomes a nice forest trail again with little noticable gain until the lookout.

This was my first return to hiking trail I did several years ago. Where I brought 5 newbie hiking out returning them foot sore 4 hours later. Hadn't done it since. A bit cloudy this am, no major gains. The last 1.6 of the Toothaker is slightly tougher than the first 2 miles.

100 degrees outside. So did the Butterfield/ Dysart/ Rainbow Valley loop. Butterfield flat in the beginning then to some hills. Once on Dysart, slight elevation loss(not that you gained much on Butterfield) goes through some washes, passed Coldwater and TA before ending at the Rainbow Valley trail. Took a right. Two climbs back to the trailhead. First one is very short, rocky and steep. In the heat actually felt it. The next one is less steep and more gradual.

Had 4 hours to kill wanted to finish the Goat Camp portions I have not been(past the mile 3 ridge and to the Barry Goldwater Peak cairn). Extremely tempted to go to the towers once at the turnoff, but have been there numerous times. After the ridge the trail becomes very easy, less rocky and just plain nice.
