July 20, 2018 warm muggy and slightly breezy desert hike. Good steady hike through the canyon, but the trail loop was not properly marked with any trail markers at approximately 2.00 miles into the hike. We ended up B-lining across the rugged terrain down to the dry ravine to get back on the trail. Tallied up 5.97 RT mileage & 1,175’ elevation gains! Cool part of the hike was seeing a desert owl and baby rattlesnake! #99 of 100 different hiking trails!
