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:

There are also petroglyphs near the waterfall. Nancy climbs up the waterfall while the others look for petroglyphs.

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.
