Comments: A beautiful summer day 8:30 in the morning. My teenage daughter and I decided on this hike and were not disappointed. The solitude was great. There was a LARGE group of kids at the entrance and I was beginning to rethink picking this hike. But after we started we saw absolutely no one. The trails were well maintained and easy to follow except a couple of intersections. The Cypress Trail along the Colorado River was shady and somewhat cooler than the ridge above. Pine Ridge Trail, is just that, pine trees. Remember the solitude I said was there? Well it was there for the spiders also. If anyone followed us in the afternoon, their way was cleared of spiders and webs. All in all it was good hike, very enjoyable.
