I used the clean restrooms at the Hole-in-the-Rock visitor center to clean up, refill my water bottles, and change into hiking clothes.
I decided to stretch my legs on the 1 mile Rings Loop Trail.





I found some petroglyphs near the trail.




It wasn't very scenic until I got close to the canyon.









Weird Rocks









There were a couple tight spots requiring a climb up the rings.










Since I had just ridden Cedar Canyon RD twice, and did Foshay Pass/Powerline Trail last time I was here, I decided to try a new route.
I took the sandy Mid Hills RD.
I kept seeing a couple fresh motorcycle tracks in the sand. I wasn't sure if I was following two motorcycles or one that had ridden both ways.





I hadn't noticed how parallel the tracks were. I chatted with this friendly hack rider. I don't think he had ever heard of advrider though.




Macedonia Canyon Trail
