This 6.5 mile loop along dirt bike trails in and around Sycamore Creek was my first 100-degree hike of 2018. Due to not being able to start where I originally planned I took a different route and encountered a number of faint petroglyphs.
 
2018-05-02 - The Boulders - Take 2   19 Photos   May 2, 2018
 
With Tracey along on the rerun we started from Forest Road 143. Unfortunately Tracey did NOT enjoy any part of it... the long ridgeline approach, the cholla, the cat's-claw, and especially not the boulder-hopping through drainages filled with 10-foot boulders. Drop down in the wrong place and you're stuck! Thankfully we managed to avoid those.
