Great trail, took about an hour and a half with 2 dogs, a 7yr old and multiple water breaks. Not as crowded before 9am, but the parking lot was almost full at 10:30 when we got back.

The trails on superstition can be
a bit confusing. Take Jacob's crosscut up treasure loop and behind the giant bench is the prospector's view trail to the base of the mountain. Recording our hike on AllTrails helped tremendously to keep us on track. Spectacular views!! Great cardio workout!!

Really liked this hike. Pretty and peaceful and easier than expected - probably due to trail condition - really well taken care of with no real obstacles. We started on Jacob's Crosscut which was very easy. Climb doesn't pick up until actually on Prospectors View Trail. There's a nice bench at the top with a really pretty view. The descent was a little rockier than the rest of the trail. Also saw some wildlife - deer and jackrabbits.
