Weather was perfect and mostly overcast. Trail is well traveled and scenic. The views of Estrella are picturesque. Steady elevation climb. Loved all the stones and colors. I did the loop to Lost Creek and down Mountain Wash. Took 2.5 hours with frequent stops to take pics and one snack break. Saw only maybe 10 other hikers all morning, only 3 on QMT

Did the loop from Mountain wash-lost creek-skyline crest-crest summit-quartz mine. Pretty good elevation on skyline, but not too hard. Started a bit later than I wanted for a summer morning, got a bit overheated towards the end. Take lots of water, no shade at all from half way through if it's past 8 am.
