Really nice hike up the West side from Baylor Canyon Rd to the ridge crest and back down. Left car at 8:30 and returned about 1:15. Ate lunch at the top, enjoying the views into both valleys. passed by a few trail runners. Saw a few other hikers, one couple coming over the Gap from the East side with a car at both ends of the trail. Wish I had that option, but as a solo business traveler that wasn't an option for me. Stopped often to take a lot of photos. Hot dry trail today but I carried plenty of water
