It had been a couple of years since I had done this hike, so I decided that it would be a good day to do this one again and escape some of the heat of the valley.

We did the loop CW, so we started out on FR 106D which morphed into FR 105E. We made our way into Martin Canyon which was mostly shaded, which made for some nice hiking. The ascent up the Rick Tank Cutoff Trail was not an easy climb, but we made our way up past Woodchute Tank to Trail #102.

From there we went to an overlook on the north side of Woodchute, and stopped for a break while we enjoyed the views. We took Trail #102 back to the TH, and along the way we went off-trail for a ways to hit the Woodchute summit, and signed the summit register while we were there.

We hit the trail at 7:00 AM and were back a little before noon, so we beat most of the heat of the day. We did not see anyone on the trails, which was a nice bonus. I did not expect to see many people, but I figured that someone else would be hiking. We did see a number of campers at dispersed sites on the way in to the TH though.

The last mile to the TH was on a dirt road, but most any vehicle could drive on it.

This wasn't 100% full, but it was at least 75% full.
