A 10.9 mile trek across Phoenix's North Mountains. Trail is well marked but I still became disoriented (even with a map!) between mile 7 and 8 where two other trails and associated unsigned social trails intersect. Accordingly, this route incorporates a mile of re-orienting, and use of another route. Keep an eye on those markers!

First Supes hike! Trail seemed in good shape; about what would be expected for a popular route. Stream beds were mostly dry.

A moderate South Valley loop hike with plenty of views. Not at all crowded for a Saturday.

Convenient hike close to camp at state park. Nice specimens of petrified wood but nothing like one sees at the more well-known national park in Arizona. Nice view from a pour off at halfway point.

Nothing particularly challenging about this loop. Short and sweet, with great scenery.

Set out to do the loop as described in title but lost the trail on some slick rock. Even with map, I was unable to find route, so backtracking I went.

Nice overview of Yellowstone's character: canyons, waterfall, geothermal, opportunities for wildlife sighting. The optional stair climb is a real workout; not for those with weak knees.

Nice enough hike through forest. Great views from higher up. Had to turn back before the ascent onto the butte.

Scenic P2P through a geothermal area. Combines Bumpass Hell, Crumbaugh Lake and Mill Creek Falls trails.

Easy, sauntering stroll along a low coastal bluff. Look for otherworldly rock erosion near the turnaround point.
