This is by far the BEST hike I've gone on in superstition Mtn. Beautiful, well maintained, some shade along the way, and good cardio spots!
The only downfall is the long dusty dirt, washboard road (7 miles) to get there.
The hike seems longer than 5.5 miles RT but absolutely love it!

The hike is it's gentle climb to the switchbacks and never gets too difficult. Theres great footing, not a lot of loose rocks. It's an easy hike for most people. it took me 48 minutes to the top, not pushing too hard.

This is by far one of my favorite hikes! Very gradual incline which was perfect. The views all the way up were beautiful and coming to the top to see Weavers Needle was just amazing! The trail is poorly marked as it is just a dried up river bed, but it was easy enough to follow. Bring plenty of water and some good footwear. Enjoy!

Really great trail!! 7 mile dirt road leading up to the Trailhead. There are bathrooms. Didn't see any drinking water, so bring your own. 4.9 miles round trip hike to the saddle. You can continue on for about .5 miles to the lone tree, however, this trail is not as clear as the rest of the trail. There's several areas offering shade throughout the trail. Views are incredible. Lots of rocks - big, small and loose. Definitely recommend going early this time of year.
