    We did this hike over the weekend. In my opinion it's not that hard..... just really long. We clocked 13 miles total roundtrip. But most of it is flat, so it's not crazy taxing. The only real elevation gain is the very end when you climb the battleship. There are a few places where you have to do some rockclimbing. Nothing to where you need ropes, but if you aren't comfortable with 3-4 move bouldering, this hike will be scary for you. The top of battleship is worth the scramble! Gorgeous views of the superstition wilderness! I brought a gallon of water and finished it by the time we reached the car.

    This hike was amazing! It is long and definitely a scrambly challenge, but it is certainly easier than its north side sister, Flat Iron. The trail is a little tricky to follow, but with GPS we had no problem. I highly recommend GPS for this trail. Spectacular views of gold canyon and of weavers needle. The best part was we only saw a few other people on this hike and had the summit all to ourselves!! This is a great trail if you want amazing views and a challenge, but also to avoid the crowds of Flat Iron.

    This was an absolutely wonderful canyon to go through. We went through in early May, and the water level and weather was perfect. We wore 3mm full wetsuits, and they kept us at the perfect temperature. The hike into the canyon is easy-- about 2 miles downhill. Once you enter the canyon, you have roughly a mile of wading/swimming. Be sure to bring gloves, river shoes/neoprene socks, helmets (as the waters can be rough - you dont want to hit your head!), and a dry bag for your gear. You WILL be completely submerged for at least part of this trek. There are no technical canyoneering skills required until the very end. You will need to be sure and bring a harnass, at least 100 feet of rope, a biner, and a belay device. You will have to rappel down a 40ft waterfall to exit the canyon. When we were there, the water level was high enough to jump, and some people were jumping (we rappelled), but be aware that the water level might not be high enough to jump. So, you need to come prepared to rappel just in case. If you don't, there is a good chance you could get stuck with no way out! I think mid-spring (April/May/June) is the best time to go through the Jug as the water is high enough but not too high. Also, less risk of monsoon. The only part about this canyon I didn't enjoy were the wasps - there were a bunch of wasps towards the beginning of the route drinking from the pools. If you are allergic, be sure to bring you Epipen just in case!

    ProTip- when you turn off the highway onto A-Cross road, you will drive across a stream. If you are comfortable crossing the stream in your vehicle, the water levels in the canyon are probably safe. If not, the water levels are not safe and you should try again another day!

    The view from the peak cannot be beat! On a clear day you can see all the way to Mt. Humphrey's! Like other's have said, the actual hike isn't really that hard - the first 4/5 of it are very moderate, more like a walk in the woods. However, the last 1/5 of the hike is pretty much a technical climb. I absolutely loved this part because I love climbing, but be aware if you aren't prepared for a very steep albeit short technical climb to reach the actual peak. Dogs will not make it to the peak due to the steepness of the last bit. My boyfriend and I joked that the hardest part of this hike was actually the drive to the trailhead! We took the route from Phoenix that you'll get if you click "directions" on all trails and map from Phx., Even though we had a high clearance truck, we struggled. It is 18 miles of off-roading. If you have access to an ATV or some other off-roading vehicle, that would be the best vehicle to take to this trail. However, after the hike we took the "back way" out because we didn't want to tackle the off-roading again. The "back way" is only about 10 miles of dirt road, and its actual dirt road, not off-roading. It adds an additional 50 miles to your trip, but is actually about the same in terms of time because most of the drive is highway. Next time I do this hike, I'll definitely take the back way both in and out unless I can get my hands on a dirt bike or ATV! The entrance to the dirt road that brings you in the back way is right before mile marker 255 along Hwy 188. Follow the dirt road for about 10 miles and you will find the trailhead!

    We really enjoyed this hike! It's not hard at all. I don't think it deserves the "hard" rating on all trails. Maybe moderate. But it is almost 10 miles round trip so it's certainly long! You have to buy a permit in advance to do this hike, which I appreciate because it's awesome not having a million people on the trail. The trail is easy to follow, and when you get to the waterfall at the dam you can go for a swim! The water is not too cold. Bring goggles so you can dive under and look at the fish! We did this hike in April, and it was hot in the way out. I wouldn't recommend doing it any later than April or may. Maybe I would agree with the "hard" rating if I was trying to trek this trail in 100 degree heat, but that does NOT sound fun! All in all, it's a fun and solid hike. If you go, PLEASE pack your trash out. We carried some trash we found strewn on the side of the trail out, and it annoyed me. If you can pack it in, you can pack it out. Please respect this beautiful area and do your part to preserve it!

    Ver difficult hike! We took 3 liters of water each and finished all of it by the time we made it back to the car! This hike is not for the faint of heart. Dogs are allowed, but I don't see how they could make it up the last bit which is VERY steep- any steeper and it would be a technical climb. If you're up for a challenge, the views from the top are a fantastic reward! I would definitely do this hike again!
