We ran Onion Creek and killed some time on Rose Garden Hill, and then we were off to do Thompson Canyon. It was a new trail for the group so we weren't too upset that Rose Garden Hill was a bust. We like new trails!
It was easy to find, right there at the end of Onion Creek. It was easy to start, but it wasn't long until the wide road closed in and we were going down steep switchbacks. We were glad the trail was dry. The switchbacks weren't too bad, and no one had any issues.
Route finding was easy as we worked our way around the hill. The dirt changed colors a few times, from red to white and back again. It was very scenic.
It didn't take long to get to the end of the trail where there were a few signs pointing the way. It was also the Kokopelli Trail, and we saw a few people on bicycles along the way. It looked like a lot of work in the hot sun. We'll stick with our vehicles. We turned left at the end of the trail to explore Polar Mesa, yet another new trail.
