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.

NOT GOOD FOR DOGS! We stopped early after seeing a dog who had rubbed its paws raw on the rough rocks. My dog is a seasoned hiker and paws were sore even on a shortened version.

Beautiful hike though. A great workout.

9.2. Great day, lots of sunshine and wild flowers. Took about 41/2 hours. We did the loop clockwise and I'd recommend going that direction. ☀️☀️☀️. Take plenty of water!!!

Nice hike for the family. Ran across a rattlesnake on the trail so be aware.

Got lost at first. Make sure to go left once through the orange fence. Great view. Nice and shaded at top. Legs were definitely feeling it by the end!

Great hike as expected, but our car was broken into in the parking lot. Stole a bottle of sunscreen and swim trunks.

Just a friendly reminder to empty your vehicle before you head out :)

Excellent trail, steady climb, and the scenery is amazing all over. I'll definitely be back for another round.

I'd consider this moderate to difficult. That last bit up is hard! Heart was pumping and legs were burning. Gorgeous view and worth the scraps and cuts. But wowzers...it was more difficult than expected...
Go early...other posts said "mostly shaded" but the only shade we had was in the cave.

Great little hike! Compared to many of the hikes in the Superstitions, I would say that majority of this hike would be considered easy but the last 1/4 mile is rock scrambling that will get your heartrate up! I feel like way too many people just gave up before they got there - they were so close! It is a really neat shady cave up top filled with lots of sand. Our little chihuahua did just fine too but had to help her up a couple of parts. We would do it again! The orange gate feedback helped for sure but even with it, there are a few tricky parts so follow the map on here for help!

Awesome hike including a great drive in, parking can be tough but there is a lot right next to the trailhead which is also a RV/camping/restaurant parking. Great views and well marked trail however, when you come to the location that contains what looks like an old foundation with a fireplace nestled in a cave do not go straight go right. If you go straight you'll eventually find yourself overshooting into the stream but there are cairns to backtrack on.
