On the 304 yesterday. Did the loop, starting on the east and looping around to the west. Th east wing is a little bit difficult, climbing steeply up a rocky trail until it reaches the top. At the top, there is a nice park bench for comfortable seating before heading on. Heading to the right, you can follow the 8 to the 8B, or eventually to the 100. I believe that is the way to 2 Bit Peak, where I have been a couple times, though not in the last couple of years. Heading to the left, you will traipse through the desert for a ways before you turn off onto the 1A or continue on the 304 and back to Squaw Peak Drive and parking. The 304 loop is only about 2 miles, but it leads to other much longer hikes. I have done 10 miles starting on the 304. Yesterday it hit 105 degrees and I went out at 1 pm, so I was definitely in it, but I was not alone. There were quite a few people out, most on the summit trail, but I saw some on my trail, too. At the end, I was asked for directions from father and daughter and I am pretty sure they did not have water. I had some to spare, and went back after them, but did not catch up. Hope they made it a short hike. The day started out sunny, but quickly turned cloudy and ended up overcast. Anyway, fun summer hike.
