Nice day for a hike, went past the needle and on down to the Dutchman's for a quick thru hike. Stopped for lunch at Black Mesa Trail.

To get to the trailhead head down 60 east towards Globe, Make a U-turn on 60 at the Picket Post Exit. There is a dirt road and gate (Locked) directly at mile marker 220 (this is not it), go just a little farther to the second dirt road & gate, go thru the gate (close it behind you)and park off to the side, Note: Peak 2901 is directly in front of you when you are facing the gate going in. There is a gentle slope directly across from the gate, as you head down that slope head for the wash in front of you (turn left when you hit that wash, follow it until you hit a wash heading off to your right (we put a cairn there). You'll notice that you are heading up to a saddle that is to the left of Peak 2901. Work your way up to that saddle and then follow the ridge up to Peak 2901, there is a container with log inside concealed in the rock pile at the top. When you leave, you can follow the ridge back down to the saddle and then head up to the peak on the other side, work your way over that and follow a faint use trail back to the inner road, you can walk the road back to your vehicle. This is considered a bushwhack, but I consider it an easy one, watch for snakes in the warmer months. Fun, short, hike.
Note: the GPS coordinates given indicate they are for the summit, but we found them to be for the parking area?

Out for a hike with Bob up to the Horns of Dilemma (Great Name). The route is rated as a bushwhack, but I consider it to be one of the easiest I've encountered. There is a distinct trail out to the foothills of the horns and then a fairly easy climb up to base. Good views of Canyon & Saguaro Lakes and a nice flat spot to have a snack. Very pleasant little hike.

Headed out JF Trail, hooked up with Hoolie Bacon about a mile out and ended up linking it to Peter's Trail by bushwacking about two miles. Hoolie Bacon trail is in pretty bad shape, Bob trimmed some as we went along, but it needs a full crew to get it back in acceptable condition. It seems like the cats claw this season is worse than ever, the bushwacking section nearly tore our clothes off. Only saw one other hiker all day, the 3-1/2 mile walk in from the road to the trailhead keeps many folks away, we took the RZR in. Running water still in Tortilla creek. Weather's warming up, take plenty of fluids, you'll be glad later.

I've never seen so many people on a trail in my life....WOW!! There were so many cars, folks were parking a mile down the road. I was in the area and thought, what the heck, why not. Nice weather.
