Ascent Trip Report***Private Hike***
Loop hike with HPS Route 1 for ascent and Route 2 for descent. Well marked and maintained trail for Rte 1 to summit; Rte 2 down consisted of non-existent trail along ridgetops to Pipe's Canyon. We got tired of climbing and descending bumps along ridgeline so we diverted east and dropped down into Pipe's Canyon about a half-mile up canyon from parking area. Nice day, cool, breezy, excellent views. Mileage and gain for loop.
