Loved it. I did it a year ago during summer times. I know crazy. But it wasn't that bad. There were a lot of trees and places to rest. Loved it and I hiked a 3 times after that. Or more I don't remember.

Absolutely LOVED this trail. We began hiking by 5:30a which was perfect bc on our way up MAJORITY of the hike uphill was shaded. BEAUTIFUL scenery! You'll know you hit the end of the trail once you get to that rocky point seen on this app. My 12 year old was able to hang. Careful on your way back. It's a bit rocky and I slipped many times. It wasn't much traffic when we went which was great! Definitely the best hike we have done so far!!! 2 days later and I'm still sore! So worth it!

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!

Beautiful fun hike! It is a workout for sure but that's good right.
