The Superstition Wilderness area is open only to hikers and equestrians; no 4wd vehicles, ATVs, dirt bikes, or bicycles are permitted in the wilderness area.

I took this trail about 3 weeks ago and was blown away by its beauty. Although it's far from the city (in Gold Canyon), the drive is worth it. The weather channel had forecast rain. I took my chances and actually wished that it rained so my pictures would come out different! It didn't disappoint me! It took about 45 minutes to get there and I noticed that I wasn't the only one who took chances to hike through inclement weather.

Once you get to the location, the sight is to behold. I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. I spent a full hour looking at the beauty that surrounds this place and of course looking at all the petroglyphs. It's an humbling experience for sure and returning back to the city as hard! It started drizzling on way back and I ran (or jog) almost all the way for 30 minutes to get back to the parking lot. What an experience!

The hike is easy to moderate (due to rocks) and highly recommended for families with children and dogs. Do not forget to look to your right while going up - those Superstition Mountains and the valley is stunning!

The views start out as good views, and gradually progress to amazing views by the end. This trail just gets better and better the entire way. What a treat!

Great trail. Only thing I would say is we did not find it easy, i would say moderate at the least. Beautiful scenery and the close up view of the mountains was incredible

so fun!! just make sure you have good shoes on. There are a few different ways to get to the cave when you get closer, if you go to the left, it is much more difficult, but so worth it

Great hike!! The last part of it is steep but very doable, even with a kid on your back
