Good hike but easy to get lost as part of the trail has eroded and overgrown. You need a parking adventure day pass that needs to be purchased before you come up the mountain. There's no reception once you start the drive up to mountain. Have to cross the river a couple of times so it's good to bring some hiking sandals or water shoes and extra socks. Pack a lunch to eat at the top. Bungee jumping is at the top of the bridge. Very popular trail. Beginning half of the trail has shade, the end toward the bridge is sunny and hot. Bring lots of water. Start early cause it gets hot toward the top. Saw bighorn sheep on the trail too.

Beautiful day yesterday. Creek was nice and flowy and we crossed back and forth over it many many times. It was so refreshing! Creek provides a nice source for tree growth in an otherwise arid landscape. Saw several people panning for gold along the way and campers too. Took us 6hrs to do about 13mi. One big drawback would be the $63 parking ticket to everyone not parked in the tiny parking lot provided ☹️

I love the fact that I can take one of several trails that are available. Some are moderate and some, like Sunrise Peak and the Quartz Trail, are a terrific challenge. Moreover, the views of the desert landscape and view of the surrounding mountains are fabulous. Just simply stop along the way and take in the beautiful scenery. I’m a flat lander from Illinois and think it’s spectacular there. The one thing I don’t like is people bringing dogs there. It’s rocky footing, hard on their paws and rarely do they bring enough water for them. I did have to help carry a dog down from the path going to Sunrise Peak. Wear good hiking shoes if you have them, bring plenty of water, sun screen, a hat and remember there ARE snakes there. Just be aware of your surroundings.

It was fun. Yesterday my friend and I really enjoy it a lot. Like the below say there’s narrow trail a lot cactus by the trail but you can walk thru just to be careful. There is couple climbs I was nervous about but friend of mine help me guide. Not too bad tho. Just my balance was not too well I will definitely come back. Perfect weather tho 80s. There’s shade where you get surrounded with tree it’s beautiful

Love it, beautiful view.

My second time at North Fortuna. This time I signed the book

Make sure you take a right when you get to the fork on the trail. Left for spring (top of waterfall) right for dam (bottom). Took about 7 hours pacing myself and spending time at the waterfall. Hiked in mid April and water was great!

This is a good beginners hike has a few challenges but nothing major. a few streams and rocky roads. Take extra socks, light snacks and about 2 Lts. of water. I did a very early hike from 6am to 1pm I was back. not many uphill situations. happy hike!

Loved this trail. It is on the easy side of moderate, but this trail is not easy. There is some good elevation changes and some excellent scenery. The lower parts of the trail are pretty easy, but the later parts near the summit are where it because more difficult. Definitely worth checking out.

Havasu, Mooney And Beaver are all beautiful!
Definitely worth the hike.

Check out my videos of the hike and the camp ground.

Awesome trail. I rate easy trail with moderate elevation.. Bonus we seen the wild horses on the end of our hike playing in the lake.

Was absolutely worth the wait and yes although a tough hike, with plenty of water, proper shoes, snacks & laughter from friends, recommend this hike. Get permit and enjoy.

Nice hike in, long, and fairly intense but manageable on the way out. Only real
Shit part is that first mile back up, it’s the steepest. Swimming hole totally worth everything! I encourage anyone who is a good swimmer to go into the toilet bowl. So fun. Bring good swimming goggles. Fill your water bladder up at the beginning of the springs, where it’s filtered. It’s clean water, straight from the earth. Enjoy

Can’t give a completely accurate review as we were in a rush to catch a fight so I only had about 45 min on trail. But nice steady incline, path rocky but manageable. Nice views. Wish I could have finished the whole trail!

Amazing! Definitely not easy on the way back up but it’s tolerable! It was my first longer hike in many years, and i felt extremely accomplished when I made it back to the top.I can’t wait to go again! One thing... bring A LOT of water! I brought 5L and had my last sip as I got to the car.

Great trail. Moderate is perfect description. Summited right before sunset and while it was beautiful we really had to hoof it back down to beat the night setting in. So last mile was pretty dark. Would do again at sunset but descend on one of the western-facing trails.

Made the trip fairly fast this time around. Take two pairs of socks, one for up and one pair for coming down. Dry out your feet and shoes at the bridge, have a snack or lunch and make your way back. Too much time is spent drying your feet out after each stream. Just march on get there. Used only 1.5 liters but took a MSR water filter just in case someone including myself needed more. Less is more. Don’t overthink this hike. Light and fast is the way to go. + (pluses) trail running shoes, wool or synthetic socks (2 pair), dry fit material shirts & shorts, light pack and carbon trekking poles (you blaze through the streams). - (minuses) heavy gear, too much water, wrong footwear, cotton shirts & shorts small dogs with short legs that can’t make it - you will end up carrying them like many that we saw.

Superstition Ridgeline Trail hike: How to describe this day hike...? Superlatives wouldn't convey the masochistic pleasure of the physical challenge. Chronicling the challenge would diminish the magnificence of this trail.

Respect to the real mountain climbers for whom this would be just another routine day. Very happy to have done it, but once is probably enough... unless a friend wants to try it and I happen to feel a bit sadistic.

Phone died five hours into the hike - and with it my AllTrails app. Total distance, end-to-end, with a short detour to Flatiron Summit (and a couple of wrong turns along the trail), came out to 20.4 Km, according to my Suunto watch.

A few pointers for first-timers: stay to the left, in the ravine, on the way up to Flatiron Summit. A few trails go off to the right but they lead nowhere. Be prepared for a long, arduous hike - and bring a lot of water. The hike isn't super long, but the elevation changes slow you down, especially on the way down to Carney Springs at the end of the hike.

The saddle trail is super steep and slippery. Great cardio workout and a fun slip and slide on the way down!

Nice hike. Went all the way up to Sunrise Peak which was even more challenging.

Loved this hike! The trail itself was moderate it’s the distance that was a bit challenging with the heat. I went thought 3L of water. I had no problem following the trail using alltrails. The is no cell service but I find if I call up the map before the hike it tracks me with GPS very well, easy to see if I’m no track or not.

I took water shoes but there were so many crossing on the way back we just gave up and crossed with our boots. If that’s what you choose to do I would take an extra pair of socks to change into for the trip down.

Picturesque in sections. Good diversity in landscape. Powerboats can be noisy. Wild horses at the trailhead were a highlight.
