Route topo and my secret passage approach into the Ultimates from Newman Park exit of I-17. The log noted north of the parking (.8mi on 253G) is not there anymore though there is usually a cairn. If you are under powerlines you went too far. When hiking down the hill, aim for the 'treenis' off to your right (drawn on map) and faint trail will appear. Not all routes shown.

Adds almost a mile though 253G is flat at least. Would be super easy with bike if youre into that. Nov 24, 2014

Well bummer. Passed by 253G the other day and noticed a new "no motor vehicles" sticker on its sign post. I guess now its "official". Nov 17, 2014
