We scrapped all our plans and changed them to check out this loop that Pencak posted last week. We arrived late at the Peralta Trail head Friday night, so we camped off the road before the trail head so we could get an early start. The wind picked up just as we called it a night and it was gusty all night long. Not alot of sleep was had Friday night. With the lack of sleep, we hit the trail around 8:45am Saturday morning. We hiked this trip clockwise, taking the Dutchman Trail #104, Whiskey Spring Trail #236, Red Tanks Trail #107, Coffee Flat Trail #108,and back to the Dutchman Trail #104 to the TH. We passed a lot of people on the Dutchman both headed in and out Saturday and assisted with some pictures for some older couples at the intersection of Whiskey Springs trail and Dutchman. Most of the trails were easy to follow until we started hiking along Red Tanks #107. This trail was over grown in some areas and we definitely have our cat claw battle marks to show for it. For me, this trail was the slow, dry, long portion of the whole trip. We stopped for lunch at the intersection of Hoolie Bacon and Red Tanks Trail around noon on Saturday and hung out under one of the few trees in the area for a couple hours. We continued down #107 and made up camp just before dark about a mile before the intersection with Coffee Flat Trail. Sunday morning we ate some oatmeal, packed up our gear and pushed out the next 8 miles back to the TH. The views were pretty cool along Coffee Flat Trail. We made it back to the TH around 1pm to find that someone attempted to break into my Jeep. The scum failed and nothing was taken but that'll still piss ya off. There was plenty of water along the whole loop and everything was very green. Not a lot of flowers or anything in bloom but my allergies were going crazy.
