Walked from home to Deem Hills, where I turned onto the Circumference trail went up to the Ridgeline trail at the saddle, followed the Ridgeline trail up, over, and down to the Circumference trail. I exited the Circumference trail on its NW end which is where my route for this starts. From there I did a sort of lollypop loop to the side of Pyramid Peak to find two geocaches that I recently noticed. There's lots of trails used by Mt bikers and motorcycles out here and I mostly followed them. Reached the end of one where I thought there was a trail over the other side but I was mistaken, so I had to climb down. It wasn't too far or too bad, but the granite was rough and it would have been easier with gloves. Went back to the Circumference trail where I continued clockwise on it and then home.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I started my walk at the Lake Pleasant Table Mesa Road parking area. The walk starts out pretty easy, going down to the Agua Fria riverbed, where it crosses, then follows the the road to the Lake Pleasant boat launch. The lake level is down so there was no water to worry about and the road was very dusty. The bit before the launch is nice as it is through a mesquite grove and is shady and enjoyable.

After the boat launch I continued along the dried lakebed, road. It was very dusty. Along here, I saw two burros on the way out and four on the way back.

After a time, I cut across and onto Cow Creek road, which I followed past Indian Mesa and to Tule Creek where I stopped to find a geocache. There is a concrete platform where Tule Creek runs. I have no idea what its purpose was. It doesn't dam the creek. Strange. Tule Creek was dry.

After finding that cache, I turned back onto Cow Creek road to Indian Mesa. There is a steep road that goes partially up the mesa that I took. Then there's a path that connects to the main trail. Just before reaching the top of the mesa, there was another geocache that I stopped to find. After that, I climbed up onto the mesa and wandered around looking at most of the ruins. Most of the ruins are on the west side but there are some on the east too.

A nice Stetson Hills neighborhood trail. North access at the top of N Deem Hills Parkway. One can also take a path north to Deem Hills Park. The trail goes south and ends on N 44th Drive just south of W Desert Hollow Dr. The trail is about 0.9 miles and is made of decomposed granite. There is very little elevation change most of it is near the north end.

Besides the two endpoints of the trail, there is access in four other places. Two are from the Indian Springs neighborhood and two are in the Stetson Hills neighborhood.

There is a trash receptacle at both ends of the trail. They were recently added maybe a month or two ago. I'm sure people leave their dog's bagged poop in them.

Some kids painted graffiti at the north end of the trail of a very long penis. But this trail is maintained and the graffiti was removed a couple days after.

Water: there is none along the trail. Though it passes by one house where if the irrigation is on, the water squirts over the fence. This is almost daily in the summer around 8 am.

Wildlife: I walked in the evening today. The trail was dark and I saw two javelina. They ran off when I walked past. Even though it was dark, I know they were javelina because they stunk like javelina stink. I see cottontail rabbits all along the trail. They are everywhere. I've seen a roadrunner along the trail regularly too.

If you're in the Stetson Hills neighborhood and are itching for a walk, I highly recommend the Stetson Hills neighborhood trail.

Cruised easy today. Measured a route I've never followed before. Stopped to find a new geocache in the park.

Tired and not feeling the best today. Stumbled several times so, yeah. Stopped to find a newly published geocache near the top of the Ridgeline trail.

Got a gnat in my eye so had to stop for a minute. Man that hurt. Ran 2.5 minutes to make up for it.
