    “Trail Mix” Goal - 1,000 Miles reviewed Monument Peak Loop Trail

    5 months ago

    There is a dirt road, which can be driven carefully with a sedan, to the small parking area at the trailhead. The multiuse trail is a wide, sandy gravel path loop through some boulders, shady pine groves, and a petite babbling brook. We hiked counter clockwise, encountering few joggers, atvs, and one motocross biker. On a sunny, cool 45 degree, Sunday morning in February, we enjoyed this easy hike.
    Free parking. No restrooms. Poor cell phone coverage.

    “Trail Mix” Goal - 1,000 Miles reviewed Turnbuckle Loop Trail

    5 months ago

    We hiked clockwise on this exposed terrain loop where the steep incline switchbacks lead to the Vista View trail. The effort to the summit was the same as the switchbacks. The desert mountain panoramic views appeared greener after the recent February rain. The east side of the loop was easier than the west side climb because of the natural downhill momentum and gradual decent. Enjoyed this midday hike!
    Free parking. Nice restrooms.
