A recovery day so I drove about a mile north on Oracle Road, pulled into the Ram's Field Pass subdivision, parked in front of a community park, walked through it and found a trail leading to a bladed road.
The road had many piles of gravel and farther up.....
….piles of large boulders. An entity went bankrupt several years ago so other than the road, no other development has yet taken place. Higher I found.....
….this screen. Apparently they would dump loads of ground, separate the boulders that would later be used for landscaping. The real reason for today's hike was to scout for a future hike. A few days ago I had.....
…..parked at Catalina SP and hoofed it close to the base of Table Mountain but as I was hiking, I eyed the bladed road and figured there had to be a more direct way for a reexploring of the Mountain.
After completing the ascent of the road, a trail led to the south and I followed it for awhile. I could see it continued on toward where I could intersect the trail I had followed last week and would be a much shorter route to revisit the mountain.
I returned to the dirt road, made a left and visited an adjoining development that had 30+ home sites that were available. Nice location for a home and unsure why it has taken so long for the available lots to fill. Have to check out the price and therein may lay the answer. Finished with 3" miles and ready for another gravel ride down at Madera Canyon.
