Safe trails to follow with lots of people around in case you get hurt. Very rocky and unstable footing makes it a challenge for older folks. One specific trail is hard to follow because there are so many in this general vicinity, but it makes it easy to stay on schedule, because if your time is short you can always jump on a close trail to find your way back. Great views, challenging terrain with suitable rest stops. Enjoyed our hike this morning.

Went for a brisk hime in mid February. a tad chilly at the top

Ridgeline, Beverly Canyon, and parts of East Pima Wash trails are all cleaner than they were yesterday… I pulled a solid pound or more of trash, mostly broken glass but also four aluminum cans and one plastic water bottle as well as lots of cigarette butts, tissues, rusted metal, plastic, and rubber. #TrashMob

A solid walking hike with some mildly challenging parts due to elevation change. I enjoy the big rocks and interchanging up and down elevation shifts. A bit closer to some apartments and massive electrical wires on Beverly than I prefer, but they do give a good sense of perspective and helped me recognize where I’ve been. Opportunity to mix it up with alternate paths on the Beverly Canyon Trail.
