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!!!
5 hours going counter-clockwise. Beautiful views on an overcast cool day. Loose rocks on some of the trail can be a bit treacherous; sturdy hikers and plenty of water is a must. Lots of various Weavers Needle poses throughout hike.
Great hike. Went counter clock wise and enjoyed views of Weaver's Needle. The terrain was very diverse from wash bottoms to side slopes. Veiws were stunning.
Loved this trail...
Beautiful scenery of the classic desert southwest...
Took us 7hrs to complete, but we made plenty of stops for picture taking...
Great trial but I clocked 10.7 miles not 9.3
The hike was great. Beautiful views and fairly easy to hike. My Apple Watch and phone calculated 11.9 miles and it took is 4:50 minutes to complete. We took one 5 min break.
First 5 miles was dry then had drizzle. With 6 others. 9 mile loop in Superstition Wilderness.
