We're back to our traditional parking area for this hike. The trails now have names! We will be hiking the Cholla loop north, up over the top of the hill, then down the east side. Our fastest hikers then will split off and go across the street to Arrowhead point and down the west side, back to the parking. I (Daniel) will lead the rest back via the coach whip route. The route is used by bicycles but does have some rocks.
