Fantastic follow up to our Sedona ride yesterday. SCA and I started at a nearly deserted Fraesfield trailhead at 6:45 this morning on an ambitiously planned tour of some of the lessor reported trails in the eastern side of MSPN. A wake up climb west on Whiskey Bottle followed with a seemingly endless trudge up Watershed and Cholla Mtn Loop to El Diablo. A large sign warning us of the mistake we were making should we continue loomed over the entrance of El Diablo. Interesting detail about black diamond trails in MSPN, not only are they not really all that hard, but the hard sections all have bypasses. Carey entertained herself from the bypasses as I (mostly) rode the difficult sections. El Diablo proved to be a fun distraction, but the real prize of the day were riding High Desert and Renegade. Those trails are just so much fun on a Mtn Bike! Once we got on 136th Street Express, it was a straight shot back to Fraesfield. Only saw one snake today, green in color, close to Granite Mountain trailhead near the end of our ride. Lots of rabbits everywhere. Saw a deer on Whiskey Bottle that could have cared less of our presence.

First time back in the McDowell Mountains after a couple years. The coyote canyon portion was fun and interesting, the rest of the hike was pleasant but very flat. Lots of vegetation as well as hawks and a deer. This would be a great trail to bring kids and new hikers.

Great morning hike in the MSPN. First time starting at the Granite Mountain TH. Saw no others for the first 6 miles of the hike then the random mountain bikers, but lighter then expected. Nice display of Fairy Duster along the way. 1 ground squirrel was the only wildlife seen. On the drive home decided to take the route through Rio Verde and Fountain Hills as both ways, 101 or 87, is the same mileage to the house in SE Mesa.
