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.

nice, go after a rain, hundreds of petroglyphs

To the person who attempted to break into my car while I was on this hike - you are scum. You deserve the absolute worst and it’s people like you that the world doesn’t need. How awful are you. The fact that you couldn’t even break a window with a rock says a lot about the type of criminal you are. You deserve a spot in hell. For all of you who are planning to do this hike - please be aware there is someone out there attempting to break into your vehicle while you are out in your hike.

The Peralta, Freemont Saddle and Lone Tree trails are all pretty much the same trail. This seemed to be the best one since it was the closest to Weaver’s Needle and the Lone Tree lookout area is a perfect place to stop for a rest

I’m an experienced hiker and this trail was pretty tough at some parts but the views are worth it. We went yesterday, make sure you brings plenty of water and snacks! Lots of loose rocks and cacti. I got poked a few times. I would not recommend this hike to people who aren’t in good shape or do not hike often.

Good trail with scenic view and plenty of shade

A nice out and back. Good variety of desert plant life at the beginning of the hike and the petroglyphs at the end are pretty cool. However at the petroglyphs at the top where the "waterfall" would be was just a wet pit infested with bees and wasps that made enjoying the glyphs difficult. It was 94 and I used about 1.5L of water and took about an hour and a half.

After it rains, the waterfall is worth seeing.

well marked trail with cairns along the way. saw cow, deer, chipmunk, roadrunner on the road near the mine and a coati. If you want to find Tony's cabin keep following the trail map straight along the creek. We followed cairns vering right and turned around because it was the wrong way. stay left in a large open area near an old corral and fence. my fitbit said 15 miles at the end but we did go off trail for a couple miles.

No shade along trail. awesome petroglyphs at the end and a little cave to explore. bring lots of water to drink due to lack of shade.

It was such a nice hike!! Not too difficult just towards the end there’s about a 3/4 a mile of just steep hiking and I’m in relatively good shape! Bring lots of water and go early it’s HOT out!!

wonderful hike with beautiful views! we missed the gate to get to the cave so we got a little lost. could use better signage but otherwise a great hike :) we went in february and it was still moderately hot (at least compared to the subzero weather we were used to in north dakota) we forgot water and there is nowhere to get water there fyi. trail gets steep and challenging right before you reach the cave. the cave makes for a great spot to relax and cool down before heading back. amazing views from the cave!

Pay for your public lands pass online. Make sure you have the proper hiking shoes! Bring plenty of water! And don’t bring your dogs on this hike mid summer. Seriously it’s ridiculous!! It’s too hot for them just because you don’t think it’s hot they think otherwise.

Great Hike this morning, no bees just a bunch of dog poop along the way. I would recommend going early in the morning! Shade from the mountain helps :)

There’s only a waterfall right after a monsoon, to the comment down below.

Fun hike. I've done this one twice and haven't had any problems with it

So I’m pretty sure I’m the only person in the world that managed to get lost on this trail. Just be sure to park, and literally go straight up and through the barbed wire fence :)

This was an enjoyable hike! Clean, scenic, and it was really cool to see so much wildlife!

Fun trail with great views and the cave is awesome! Steep towards the top and a few spots to climb over some rocks - which makes it fun!

It’s a great hike. It gets steep near the top and you really need proper hiking shoes or trail running shoes with really good grip. I saw several people fall over. I found it harder going down - loose rock etc. It took as 1.20hr going up and we are of average fitness. People had their dogs.

I rated this 5 stars due to the views and how many landmarks you see along the way that call to be explored.

That being said, trekking through boulder canyon sucks. Especially in nike runners (my mistake). Definitely use boots on this trail and be prepared for lots of rock hopping.

It’s a pretty Trail. The only downside was there were tons and tons of bees by the purple trees but we didn’t get stung lol we just ran right underneath each one. We also went right before sunset so not sure if it’s the time of day we chose to go because there were lots of nats also. The hieroglyphics at the end of the trail were cool and we did a little climbing up the stream since it was dry. It was totally worth it though to watch the sunset from up there!! Amazing amazing amazing view! Was a little nervous walking back in the dark but saw some deer, nothing scary haha.Definitely want to check out lost gold mine trail also which starts at the same trailhead. The backstory behind that was interesting.

This is a great hike. Starts easy but gets really steep towards the top. I had to take several brakes close to the top. Once you get in the cave, it is all worth it. It is a lot cooler and worth the view. A fun hike!

Made the mistake of going when it was 100 degrees out. There’s no shade until you get to the cave. The last part of the hike is pretty steep. Had to get on all 4s to get down some of the boulders and did slip a couple times. The wave was pretty cool and we had fun taking pictures. Would only recommend going when it’s cooler outside. I didn’t find the trail difficult to follow at all.

It's pretty busy with lots of hikers off all ages and capacities. It's also a bit of a rocky path so with lots of folks there, you may have to take the rockier side of the path.

Really nice views towards the top of this trail, the beginning is a little bit boring but it’s worth the work to get to the top! I did this trail today and it was 104° and quite hot! I just went slow and took many water breaks and it was actually quite lovely at the top. I think it was a little bit cooler up there. Highlight was seeing that Weavers needle just over the edge.
