On Saturday I went on the Martinez canyon loop due to BLM closing the road above the cabins thereby cutting off the loop past the mill and the mine. The scenery is fantastic and the trail is challenging. I was dissapointed in the condition of the cabin. For the last 20 years or so, I would visit Martinez cabin on and off every 5 years or so and it was always in decent condition. In the last year(?) or so, due to severe vandalism to the structures by a few, the private land owner has decided to close it to all. A crying shame! Try to check it out I think it closes in with in the next month? Shoot a vandal, save a trail!
