Hello fellow hikers,

65th hike of the Club:

So this hike will be a little exploratory hike. We will need to carpool from the large Holbert Trail Parking Lot and car pool up to the "Triangle" parking Lot. There is minimum parking here at "The Triangle".

This will be approximately 4 - 5 miles in total. However, there will be some bushwhack going up Vampire Canyon. This will be steep. So there will be some Off Trail hiking. We will stop and explore around the abandoned mine camp area and possibly explore a little in the Max Delta Mine itself. Bring a flashlight or a head lamp. Keep in mind, I will not break rules. If it says keep out, I will keep out, however, if you google Max Delta Mine, you see plenty of people going in there, a little ways, and having a little fun exploring around. When we leave the mine area, we go strait up the mountain via Vampire Canyon until we join the National Trail. This will be a rough go, but it will be short. When we return, we will come down Ranger to Derby but we will drop into Burrito Wash and take that back to The Triangle.

Get ready for a fun hike, shorter hike, labeled as Moderate.
