Mike, Bob, Laura, Nancy, Linda, Denise, and I hiked 10.7 miles on Friday. We hiked: Dixie Mine, wash past mine and petroglyphs, Prospector, Bell Pass, Windmill, Coachwhip, Dixie Mine (back to trailhead).
This is the petroglyph panel near the mine:
I climbed a short ways up a slab to a ledge and took this photo of the group.

Just after leaving the Bell Pass Trail, we encountered three cyclists making their way the windmill trail. All three were very skilled cyclists as they had no problem with the rocks in this area.
