Watch out for possible Tour traffic.

Description

This was a fairly easy trek on a section of the Trans Catalina Trail, between the Sky Loop end/beginning of Hermit Gulch Trail and top of the Stage Road. Fairly wide, and we had the Hummer tour pass us while we were on it as well. It's a good size dirt road. Rolling elevation change. If you can climb up from Stage Road or the Botanical Gardens, you can easily do this section of trail.
