Did Gateway Loop today. Going up to the Saddle, it's a bit of a climb. That peaks out at 2,378 feet. After that, it's all downhill back to the trailhead. Very scenic in the McDowell Mountains. For Monday, July 10, there were a lot of hikers out! 4.5 miles today. I intend to go back and do Bell Pass.
