Doing more prep for a GC trip, last week was striding along a trail similar to the main corridor and this week something rocky and steep to get ready for some other trails in my sights. First mile always gets your attention, it is straight up. Took Soldier Trail over to the AZT to stretch my legs on something easy for 30 minutes, then turned around with a detour over to some slot canyons to take a few waterfall pictures. What is normally a Class 3 scramble when it is dry is now a Class 4 scramble when the water is flowing and the rock face is slightly wet. Snapped a few pictures and headed back down to my car.

Need to make myself a note, from here on out I will need to wear hiking pants in southern Arizona to this year. Didn't get too scratched up, but whatever pollen is on the weeds and grass gave me a bad rash all over my legs. The trails around here are very overgrown with waist high grass and weeds along most of the trail. Bumped into one other person this morning and we chatted for a minute. They were a retired FS employee and we both concurred that while the grass and wildflowers look nice, next year this will be potential tinder for wildfires.

Surprisingly no snakes were seen, but did see the most impressive pile of bear scat I've seen since moving down here. Pretty far down the mountain as well, at best a half mile from Catalina Hwy.

Late morning hike with Rudy. No wildflowers, this Spring is a bust.

For some reason in the HAZ Hike Guide for this trail it incorrectly indicates the trail lies within the Bighorn Sheep Management area. It is in fact in The Pusch Wilderness Area, and not the restricted Sheep management area. Making it open to dogs, and off-trail hiking January-April.

big loop i like using catalina highway up to soldier trail, soldier to hirabiyashi, AZT out to la milagrosa ridge.

it was chilly and cloudy at the beginning. i kinda struggled all day after two difficult nights at work. tried to just keep it moving, even if ugly.

tough day but a fun route

Did this as a quick sunset out and back. Didn't get all the way to the camp. Tough start compared to Babad Doag, but really nice in the evening.

My first hike in the Catalinas in quite a while. I have to say, (preaching to the choir I'm sure), I've never seen it so dry. It really is kind of worrisome. The prickly pears and saguaros look very shrunken and stressed.

My friend and I used two cars, and walked downhill from Prison Camp to the highway. I don't recall ever having hiked this trail before.

I'll be living in Tucson for two or three months beginning in mid December. There are lots of hikes I'd like to do while I'm here.

We may need a power hike category, faster than a hike but I certainly didn't run everything. Trying to expand my horizons and decided I'm going to make an effort to drive all the way across town a few times a month to see what trails on the east side of town look like. Perfect weather for a big climb, in the low 60's when I parked at the trailhead. The first mile will definitely get your attention, if it were any steeper it would be a scramble. Probably the steepest trail I've done in a while that didn't require me to use my hands on the uphill.

Will need to keep this area in mind for future visits, some of my favorite type of hiking/running. Steep trails that lead into beautiful canyons. Did the whole trail and then went immediately left into a drainage, then rock hopped down into a canyon to explore for a tiny bit. Felt pretty decent and was able to get from my car to the AZT in 50 minutes. Then came back up and proceeded to run on the nice wide AZT over to the Sycamore Canyon trailhead and then turn around to go back the way I came. .

Didn't have any plans for the day after Christmas, so I decided to attack the next segment of the AZT. Tried to park at Hirabayashi, but the guy at the checkpoint wouldn't let me go without chains/4wd (of course they opened the road just a half hour later). Pretty lame, would be cool if they were allowed to use common sense, but I didn't mind adding Soldier Trail (wish they would at least let me park a mile farther up though).

Didn't get started until after 12:30pm at Redington Road, so I figured I didn't have too much time to dawdle, or else I'd be coming down Soldier in the dark. Made pretty good time across the flat stuff (the constant gunfire in the distance helped). All the big and little drainages were flowing, and the Agua Caliente Wash crossing even required me to go up about 50 feet to find a spot that was jumpable...

Made it to Catalina Highway (10.7 miles) in just about 2 hours and 20 minutes. The signage at Molino was pretty terrible; there was a sign directing you to AZ trail, but the next junction was unmarked, and the trail to the campground looked more well-traveled. So I went that way, and ended up walking through the campground, unsure if it was correct. There was even an AZ trail sign on the road. But at the other end, I found the trail meanders around the south side of the campground...oh well.

Got to Hirabayashi very tempted to hitchhike back down, but then decided I have time, so I might as well see Soldier Trail... Which was fun, except the mile and a half along the road to get back to the car.

handfull of hikers here and there. yo yo'd for miles with a couple of very nice mountain bikers and we ended up finishing at the same time. that was pretty cool.

saw 3 horses out on the AZT bellota segment.

felt pretty good today. took 15 minutes off my last time

We wanted to try a different way to top of Mount Lemmon so decided to hike Soldier Trail near the bottom of Catalina Highway. Starting about 630 we headed up the very steep first 1.5 miles before it levels out. Eventually it hits the junction of Arizona Trail just west of Hirabayashi Campground. Headed west on AZT over Shreve Saddle and down to Sycamore Reservoir. Took a few minutes to check out the reservoir before continuing on to junction of Bear Canyon Trail. Once past that junction we headed down into Sabino on East Fork trail. Plenty of water in this part of the canyon as we passed the Sabino Canyon Trail junction.

The next section of trail is probably the nicest up West Fork Sabino past Hutch’s Pool and several other pools. The uphill also kicked in as we headed up to Romero Pass. The grade isn’t particularly steep but it’s seems to drag a bit. On Romero Pass we took a break before heading up the steepest part of the ascent. Eventually we passed the WOR junction but continued on the Mount Lemmon trail to the Sutherland junction. At this point we were done with most of the elevation gain for day and none too soon as the temps were around 40 and winds howling. One last uphill through the Meadow Trail before the parking lot and our pick up from some friends that were nice enough to pick us up!

“F*@#$g Epic!” are the only two words that come to mind when I reflect back on today’s adventure, [of just under 8 hours, just over 4,200’ AEG, and just under 12.5 miles… 9.5+ of which were completely off trail]. If ever there is a contest for awesomest route to Gibbon Mountain, I will definitely be entering the one I took today.

I’d written off the shorter approaches to Gibbon Mountain [via Molino Basin or the Gordon Hirabiyashi Campground] since I needed to work on my weakness [distance] and wanted to log at least 12 miles today; but approaching via the Soldier or Babad Do'ag Trails – and then bushwhacking to connect with the GPS route to Gibbon shown here – hikelemmon.com/gibb ... ain/ – was starting to appeal. When I first moved to the Tucson area, I remember overhearing an experienced hiker mention that the Babad Do'ag Trail is very beautiful…

…and, to my pleasant surprise, when I started entering “Babad Do'ag” into HAZ, there was not one but two Descriptions: “Babad Do'ag”, [the one I was expecting, which describes the out-and-back hike along the official trail]; and “Babad Do'ag Drainage”. Let’s just say, the moment I caught sight of the word “Drainage”, I was sold.

This drainage is a boulder’s hopper’s dream! With almost no brush, tons of solid boulders and countless small waterfalls to scramble up, [for 2+ miles], this drainage is pretty sweet to say the least. I’m not sure what is typical in terms of water, but today there was very nice flow, making things all the more beautiful.

Towards the top of the drainage and after scrambling up a ridge, you connect with the official Babad Do'ag Trail by which you can return, making a sweet loop. As awesome as the drainage was, I figured I’d be pretty beat by the time I got back from bagging Gibbon Mountain [and ‘pretty beat’ would be an understatement!]. Needless to say, I was more than happy to go back by way of the trail. It was a win-win-win: a) having a very beautiful trail with decent footing to return by after over 9.5 miles of bushwhacking; b) different scenery by doing a loop over an out-and-back; and c) by going down the trail, I got to really take in the awesome views.

It took me about 1 hr. 40 min to get to the official end of the Babad Do'ag Trail via the drainage route. After that, I was initially planning to use the bushwhack portion of part of a loop route that a few HAZ hikers have posted, which connects the Babad Do'ag and Solider Trails. From there, I would follow the route to Gibbon Mountain, shown in the link I posted above.

Plans ended up going astray [in a good way]. The going was proving to be extremely easy [for a bushwhack], and I still had tons of energy… so I ended up continuing more or less ‘as the crow flies.’ It was an absolute blast… but flippin’ exhausting! Let’s just say, if you think false summits are bad, try ‘false ridges’…! I lost track of the number of ridges I went up and down. In addition to the endless ‘ridge riding’, at one point I even dropped into another amazingly beautiful drainage, which I rode for a good ways. Like the Babad Do'ag drainage, this one also had beautiful flowing waterfalls and was tons of fun to boulder up. At least with my ridge-hopping, there were no false summits! When I eventually got to the base of Gibbon Mountain, I was in perfect position to head straight up toward the large saddle between the highpoint and another point on the summit that is almost as high.

While I haven’t done many hikes in the Catalinas, Gibbon Mountain definitely takes the prize for my hands down most beautiful summit views in this range to date, [better than Cathedral, Window Peak, Rattlesnake Peak, and Airmen Peak to name just a few]. I was surprised to not find a summit register since this is a SAHC peak. I’m usually pretty good at finding them too, but it’s possible I may have just missed it. The ridgeline that traverses the top of Gibbon Mountain is very fun and offers a great variety of spectacular views. I couldn’t agree more with this: “While Point 5801 seems to be marked/referred to as ‘Gibbon Mountain’ don’t stop there! For great views of the lower portion of Bear Canyon (and a nicer spot to stop and take a break) continue to the next prominent high spot (to the south-west)” hikelemmon.com/gibb ... ain/.

After continuing to the prominent high point toward the Southwest [which interestingly enough has a large cairn on top], I retraced my steps to the actual highpoint, then back to the saddle area, and then, [instead of descending from the saddle area], I decided I would take a different route back. Not only did I want to visit the third prominent highpoint on Gibbon, I was having tons of fun traversing the ridgeline… and it was definitely a lot less tiring than the ridge-hopping I did en route to the mountain.

Initially I rode the main ridge off Gibbon Mountain… then ended up on a different ridge… then crossed a small drainage… then contoured a minor peak… [maybe I mixed up the order of some of that; thank God for GPS!]. At one point, I spotted the trail I was initially planning to connect with on my way to Gibbon Mountain. This time, I angled my path toward it and touched down on trail at 8.25 miles, [all of which had been bushwhacking up to that point, aside from the few feet where I reconnected with the official end of the Babad Do'ag Trail]. Shortly after reaching trail, I arrived at the junction for the Solider Trail; and shortly after turning onto the Soldier Trail, I made a left onto an unofficial but well defined route that connects the Solider and Babad Do'ag Trails. The going was very smooth at first…

…but, [thanks to the combination of easy off-trail terrain and a good sense of direction], I realized that I’d strayed a fair margin from my ascent route by the time I decided it was time to spot-check my GPS. Not wanting to backtrack, I pushed forward, hoping that the ‘hypotenuse vs. two sides’ phenomenon would once again work out in my favor… and that I wouldn’t step on a rattlesnake in the process. My shortcut back involved traversing some terrain with very tall grass, [the kind where you cannot see what might be underneath], and the temps had warmed up enough to where the snakes might just venture out… luckily it all worked out well. When I touched down on the official Babad Do'ag Trail and looked back at the small drainage I ended up using on the return trip, I thought, “pretty cool… that’s the same drainage I was thinking about using initially…”
