Very beautiful trail but bring lots of water. Views are amazing.

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.

One of my favorite spots! True there can be a lot of people up to Humphrey’s saddle- but every time I go up and over I can spend most of the day with out seeing another person. You can’t go wrong with peralta either way- some of the best views around

Very beautiful hike, view at the top is breathtaking if you enjoy the lovely desert! Also some shade along the hike. Very nice when it's hot outside.

Peralta trail offers two paths to hike. The one to the left offers a trip to the wave cave. The hike to the right takes you to petroglyphs with water runoff from winter snow melts that taste exquisitely smooth like snow.

Loved this hike, especially the last ¼, super beautiful and unique terrain!

Bring plenty of water, and even more in your 4x4. Start early as it's an all day affair, and bring friends!

Great, enjoyable hike! We would rate the moderate, however, highly recommend hikers be aware of their hiking ability. The hike is very remote and it would be difficult should anything unexpected happen.

The 19-mile drive was gorgeous but took over an hour. The hike was fantastic, gradual incline with a few steep inclines and declines. Make sure to bring more than enough water and snacks!

Overall a fantastic day and well worth for those who want to make the drive!

An AMAZING hike with different views and terrain around every turn.
Going back this Friday for everything is blooming !!! Can't wait to hike this trail again.

This is still one of my favorite trails. It’s beautiful with lots of places to rest along the way, including some shaded spots. Definitely one of the moderate ones that’s closer to difficult than easy, but doable for anyone who is willing to take the time. I took my three kids up ages 6 to 14 at the time. There was lots of resting, gameplaying, and snacks involved but they made it and it was awesome!

A lovely walk with a real remote feel to it. I would second Mark Rutherford - the trail is not tough and ‘moderate’ would be fitting.

The hardest part of the day is squeezing past other trucks on the access road! The ten mile approach is actually fine with 4x4 and a little care in places. The views are to die for too.

Finding the trail down into the canyon is easy and I had little/no route finding difficulties. The trail itself was in good shape and there was little brush to impede progress.

The cliff dwellings are fascinating and a great insight into the lives of those who trod the land before us.

Reall really great trail, however the turnoff for the falls is quite easy to miss. This trail shares a trailhead with the longer, Reavis Ranch trail. The left split-off trail is around 2-3 miles from the trailhead, after the meadowy hills. Even if you do miss it, there is some awesome country out there, but the falls are worth the trip.

This is one of the most beautiful hikes I've done! I am 30 weeks pregnant and made it to the top, and so can You! the only thing I was not aware of was that it's about a 15 minute drive on a dirt road. besides that it was a beautiful trail with lots of gorgeous views! definitely worth the drive⛰

The route shown is to Superstition Mtn. Robber Roost is a right turn when you get to the saddle above Carney Spring. Then like in the youtube video you continue over to Fremont Saddle. This is a very tricky trail to follow until you get out of the small canyon that you follow off the saddle. Basic rule is all ways go right at a junction, except for the couple of times when you go left when you are on top.

The perfect spring hike. Started at 7:45am and only 5 cars in lot. Was full but not overflowing when I returned 3 hours later. The trip to the lone pine is a must. Added probably 0.75 miles out and back to the tree. Gave a much better sense of scale of the needle and better views from that vantage point...and shade for an apple and hand ful of trail mix! Moderate rating is accurate. Varied terrain, nothing difficult. A great half day hike!

Great hike!! Took us longer than we expected but that was all the stops looking at rocks,cactus, lizards and more!!! Amazing views.

First real desert hike. So beautiful and different at every spot on the trail. I'm hooked. Can't wait to hike again.

Gorgeous. Beautiful views all along but particularly at the top overlooking the needle.

Fun trial with nice views! About 3 miles driving on easy dirt road to get to trail head. Free parking. Bathrooms. Moderately trafficked with some sporadic spots of shade but mostly exposed to sun.

Great views

Plan was to hike Wave Cave today, no parking! So......did another beautiful hike to Weaver’s Needle considering I was more than half way through the dirt road drive....First Day Of Spring!!! Lots of green :)

I'm not an avid hiker... so it was a little too strenuous for my taste. I was hoping the view from the top would make it worth the effort, but maybe my expectations were set a little too high, because it was good, but not spectacular.

This is definitely one of my top favorite hikes in this area! The views are really wonderful and the terrain switches up a lot to keep things interesting. I took my two dogs who are very used to hiking and they started to get a little tired towards the last mile coming back. We went on New Year's Day so by the time we were descending it was very crowded but I am not sure if it is because it was a holiday. Driving up, there is a long stretch of dirt that is a bit rocky so I would recommend going slow or taking a larger vehicle. By the time we were driving off, the parking lot was completely full and people were parking pretty far down the road. All in all it took us a bit less than 3 hours going at a leisurely pace with a 20 minute break for food at the halfway point.

Absolutely beautiful hike. Definitely a good workout. I’d say it’s on the harder side of moderate because of all the rocks. Lots of people recommend looking back, definitely do so! Breathtaking views as you get higher and higher on the mountain.

As always I love this trail. Was trying to find the wave cave, but our map wouldn’t load to get it so we opted for this hike! My dog Clark did well, but I’d say make sure you pup is ready for a tough one before you go!

This is so far my favorite hike since I moved to AZ (granted I’ve only done a handful). I did it in the afternoon and it wasn’t as hot or as crowed as advertised, so overall a great experience. For the most part it was shaded.
The trail is very easy to follow and a smooth up to the saddle and smooth down again (the elevation “shape” that I like the most). The views are amazing almost all the way!

Just to be clear, this trail is marked as hard in this app but I would rate it as moderate. There are great views and the ruins are amazing. Beware of the three way trail sign because if you are not paying attention you will end up on another trail and not back to the Rogers trailhead

Definitely work but it was worth the effort. Some of the sections are rocky and strenuous but they are short. Fun trail.
