1st trip
The drive in on 172/172A was uneventful. Queen Creek had a decent flow, but nothing a vehicle that would be driving these roads couldn't handle. Close to our TH, we saw a large Ford Transit panel van coming down 172A.

Woodbury Trail #114
There was one truck at the TH when we got there.
This trail down to the Woodbury TH appears to be and old road.
Probably a one and done

Coffee Flat Trail #108
This eastern stretch of the Coffee Flat Trail to Red Tanks was new for me. It was an easy stroll through Fraser Canyon. Very pleasant with the green and water everywhere. This would make a nice loop with other canyons in the area.

Red Tanks #107
I'd done this section before but did not remember much of it. It's quite scenic with the views of the surrounding areas and all the flowing water.

Hoolie Bacon # 111
Hoolie Bacon for me, is just a way to get to other places in the Supes. We had lunch at Horse Saddle and it did have some great views. The only hikers we saw all day, were at this saddle. One dayhiker, one backpacker and us just happened to all meet at the same time there. The hike down from Horse Saddle to the North is steep, rough and loose. Once down in the lower sections the trail is much nicer. You easily cross the flowing Tortilla Creek numerous times.

JF Trail #106
The northwestern portions of this trail is just OK. There are BIG views of the surrounding areas that help a bunch.
The trail finally starts to get interesting in the mid section around unnamed Peak 4597. [ photo ] . It seemed to take forever to get to Tortilla Pass. Dropping down JF from Tortilla Pass, there is also some steep, loose washed out areas. Towards the bottom we hit sunset and donned our headlamps.

The 1.2 mile 500'+ climb out on Woodbury to the truck, could not end quick enough.
It was a full day in the Supes.
You couldn't ask for better hiking weather.

With this this loop I'm getting closer to hitting all the trails in the Supes (37 of 39 done).
I Just have the 2 shortest left, with just 1.1 Total miles to go!
