Forgot I hadn't submitted the gps route. Definitely a fun loop, lots of scrambling up the canyon. Nothing very risky. No rope needed, but could have some rapelling fun, if coming down, at at least one point where a house sized boulder fills the canyon. Saw my first rattler of the year.

I've been wanting to do this one for quite a while. Just waiting until the time was right. With the water and spring flowers, the time is right NOW.

Soldier remains a charming little canyon. The climb out is tough, but only takes about 10-15 minutes, then it's smooth sailing the rest of the way. Nice display of flowers along mid to lower Soldier Trail.
