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.
Fun hike with great views all the way up and back. Only problem is the most people we met took a wrong turn (as we did) and added a lot of distance and time to the hike. When you get to the fence there are trail markers to the right and left. That's not the trail to Wave Cave. Just keep going straight through the access area through the fence.
Beautiful area, but very poorly marked. The trail goes up through a creek. Because of recent rainfall the creek was running making it slightly difficult to hike up with dogs. Once getting to where the middle of the loop the trail was overgrown and extremely difficult to follow. We didn't get to complete the loop because there didn't seem to be an area to get to the peralta trail. It's easy to see the lone pine near peralta, but no way to get to it that we could find. After the hike we asked the park rangers about our challenges. The Rangers stated it is not a maintained trail and is too overgrown.
Excellent easy, starter hike for the entire family, including furry kids. I'd imagine it's not too popular during summer, but this time of year was perfect. Even being a bit crowded, it was easily navigated yet there was still beautiful, wild nature to see all around.
FIRST AND FOREMOST: DO NO PARK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD!!!! YOU WILL GET TOWED!!!! Park in the parking lot area.
Great and easy day hike. Gorgeous views of the adjacent mountains and towns.There was a lot of flowing water at the top today, a lot more water than a few weeks ago. A very enjoyable hike with my dogs.
Great easy hike. Got to see the waterfall but understand it's not always flowing. BEWARE - if you park along the road with all the No Parkings signs, you WILL be towed. Three cars were being towed as we came back. There was a group at their car but the cops would not allow them to leave.
Such a great Trail. Not too difficult and yields amazing views (Weavers Needle). Took my dog with no problems, does have a few rock scrambles but nothing too crazy. Drank about 1.25 L and finished in just under 3 hours. I will definitely go back with my camera next time. Highly recommend!
