Hiked Santa Fe Peak. Rated it as moderate as it's a pretty relentless upward path along an old mining road. You pass some long-abandoned mining shed, chutes and other structures along the way. The wildflowers were beautiful, as were the views from the saddles and the summit - especially to views of Torrey's and Gray's. Very light traffic - saw just a handful of other hikers.
