1st trip
Kyle and I got together for a quick hike out in the Supes. We started from Peralta and headed east on the Dutchman and continued east on the Coffee Flat Trail. The going was fairly easy and we made good time. We then connected onto the Red Tanks trail and our pace slowed as we navigated very heavy growth and lot of cat claw. The Red Tanks is one of my favorite hikes in the Supes even though it's a pain. I especially like the section next to La Barge.

After a while we connected on the Whiskey Spring trail. Luckily the trail was in better condition and we made great time. We stopped to check out the spring and there was some water present. We dunked our bandanas and continued on to the Dutchman. The final piece of our hike returned us to Peralta. By this point we pretty much put our heads down and grinded out the last couple of miles.

This was another great day in the Supes. We did not see anyone as soon as we left the trailhead. Kyle and I have good luck with this on most of our hikes! Hopefully more hikers get out to the Red Tanks trail which will help open up the trail.
