I didn't think it was that Hard. Steep but not hard. I took it to Hidden Valley one day. That was much Harder I thought. Because, I kept losing the trail. But it's a great Shortcut to Midlife Crisis then down to Hidden Valley or back to Pima Canyon.

Back on Geronimo today. First time in a year! Last June I went up twice the same wrong way, I completely missed the trail and bushwhacked the whole way up and down, finding a very interesting outlet over massive boulders, exiting onto the Boy Scout Camp next door. Today I paid better attention and managed to follow the trail up and down. The trail is not completely well defined in spots, and a little bouldering and trail finding are required. Call it bushwhacking. Still, for the most part, I followed the trail today. I made it to the top and thought I would find National there, but I didn't see any trail markers for National, so not sure I got there. The trail continued on from there, but running out of daylight, I turned around and went back down. I did only 1.75 miles to the top, so 3.5 miles up and down. Geronimo is a difficult and appealing trail, made all the more difficult by today's 110 degree heat. I had 3 liters of water with me, and went thought most of it, but I had enough. I want to continue on the trail past the summit that I found, but will probably need more than a couple hours to do it. Anyway, this is more great hiking at South Mountain.
