It's easy to lose the trail and get too far right of the riverbed after leaving Second Water Trail for the Canyon trail. There is no marked trail up Battleship Mountain when you get there. Get ready to bushwhack and scramble. Epic achievement and breathtaking views. The terrain changes quite a few times from the beginning to the top. Wear long pants as there are a lot of dead weeds with thorns that attach to your shoes and socks. There is sometimes water along the way, but bring your own to be safe. Once you get to Boulder Canyon, the rocks cairns showing the trail are easy to miss and then it basically becomes rough boulder hiking down the canyon until you pick up the trail as it crosses again. Stay on the trail and watch for the cairns in BC. The advice the stay to the left side of the river is on point as that that is where the hike to up the battleship starts. Show more

This hike has lots of great views of the Superstition Mountains. This hike is not easy at all. You would need to have some type of map and know how to read it. The trail is easy to find but once you reach Carney Saddle it fades quickly. There are cairns along the way. Show more

Start at the First Water trailhead. The trailhead has ample parking but is heavily used so get there early. The Charlebols spring is a reliable water source during certain parts of the year. This route takes the Dutchmans trail, avoiding Bull Pass. You get great views of weaver's needle for most of this portion if the Dutchman trail. This portion of the trail is fairly easy with no major steep portions. Show more

This 10 Km loop starts up Bluff Springs Trail from the Peralta trail head, then heads north, up a beautiful valley that is the next valley east of the Peralta Valley. This valley sees limited foot traffic and includes great views of some amazing rock features. The trail works its way west to meet up with the trail to Lone Pine, and a fantastic view of Weaver's Needle. After visiting the lone pine, make your way southwest, on the well traveled trail to the Peralta Trail, and take it south, back to the trailhead. Show more
