The route on this section of trail has certainly changed from my practice hike last year, apparently due to a landowner shutting off access through a forest road that goes through private property. The new route includes difficult cross-country zig-zags to finish Milligan Hills.
On dirt road on the back side of Magdalena Mountains, I saw a bear that acted different, not running off like most black bears.
