There wasn’t much shade.

We began in Westwing Community Park parking lot. The Trailhead sign is there, next to the trail that runs northwest along Westwing Parkway, crosses the parkway to High Desert Drive for a block before picking up as a trail again along the block walls of homes. The trail winds its way past two cul de sacs and then begins up the mountain. This is a lollipop shaped trail. I pointed out a bunny I saw on the way, which was met with some disdain by this group of experienced hikers. Seven hikers this day, began at 6am when it was still just 77° and two and a half hours later, when it was 86°, everyone had left the parking lot to go on with their day.

Starting up the trail.
Onward to the loop.

There wasn’t much shade, but we moved at a good pace. The trail was rocky and challenging, but the views were worth it. Saw more lizards than people on the trail.

Time for a rest break.
