Mission Peak to Monument Peak

This adds about 8 miles to a Mission Peak climb. I added a little side trip to the spring near Mission Peak. The spring is about a half mile from the top of Mission Peak along the route. THERE IS NO WATER BETWEEN THIS SPRING AND THE PARKING LOT IN ED LEVIN PARK. Be prepared. The chances of meeting someone else out here are also pretty slim, so be sure and have your final will complete. The loop goes over to the Monument Peak hang glider launching point and then up to the top of Monument Peak. Next, it heads down into a valley and along Weller Road until it connects back to the 4 wheel drive track that runs along the ridge at Mount Allison. It is a beautiful place to run. There is a herd of wild horses that I have encountered a few times.
