Amazing trail my absolute favorite in the superstition area. When we got to the saddle we kept going to this overlook at Needle Point and it was amazing. the hike itself was full of shaded area and amazing rock formations toward the top. Even though it was summer we spent more time relaxing and overlooking the beauty of the area than most of our hikes previous.

Went to the trailhead this morning (7/3); it is blocked off and closed because of fire damage/danger.

Awesome ascent and huge payoff when you get to the top of each rise. Hiked today in early July starting kinda late in the am. 9am-2pm. Weavers needle was my goal today but the road to the trailhead was closed. Definitely bring 3+ liters of water and hydrate the day before hand. The ascent is consistent and strenuous but only had a few interesting spots requiring pause. The trail can be hard to find at times but look for markers left by the good spirits and you’ll find your way. I’m not super in shape but only had cardio issues. Made to the hill right before the top ridge but only had 1 L water left so I turned back. I recommend a buddy to hike with. I will return in the cooler months with a friend and complete this hike. Happy hiking!

Awesome hike! We did this at the end of April on a Saturday and got to the trailhead at around 6am. We reached the top in about 20 minutes or so had the cave to ourselves for a little while before the crowds started. I suggest getting there early to avoid people and crowds!

Awesome hike, great views the entire time. Went on a Saturday in June, started around 5:45am and ended at about 11:30am as I took my time to enjoy it all. Only saw one other person the entire time. None of the climbs are really all that steep, just fairly constant. But man, it did feel pretty long on the way back as it started to get hot. Definitely plan to return and hike to the Three Sisters Summit as it's just a short detour off of this same trail about 80% of the way in

great trail but almost no shade at all after the initial canyon. Verry rewarding. I really took my time so you can probably get up faster especially when it isn't so hot. now I'm considering going down via heiroglyphic trail and possibly having someone take me to my car.

Even after the sawtooth fire this is still a great hike. Weaver’s Needle didn’t burn away and neither did the ‘lone pine’. Peralta TH is intact, no damage. You won’t see any fire damage until almost two miles into the hike; and then it’s high on the east canyon side. Somewhere between 200-300 yards from Freemont Saddle the fire came down all the way to the trail from the uphill side. Once on Freemont damage from the fire is everywhere with only a few small pockets of green. You can see where the fire swept north through Weaver’s Needle and continued for approx 3/4 of mile beyond. No damage to the trails, yet, they are easy to follow. The trails out to the lone pine are much easier to see. The trail down the north side of the saddle is in great shape for now; parts may wash out during heavy rains. I hiked out to lone pine and then down peralta trail even with the northern most part of the needle. The fire damage appeared to extend somewhere between a half to three quarters of a mile more but there were large patches of green mixed in with damage. Peralta trail is still a great hike, for those who have hiked it before the damage this provides an interesting contrast.

Beautiful trail, didn’t quite finish I guess because we turned around at view of Weaver’s Beam. The trail is open- verified through Mesa station BLM.

Wife and I enjoyed the seclusion. We went early May on a Sunday afternoon and were the only ones in site the entire day. Lots and I mean lots of bugs...little Nats. Bring something to cover your ears and nose or they will constantly fly in them. Hike was difficult the first 3/4 of the way in. We are avid hikers in good shape and we needed several breaks going in. Amazing views. Fun Hike. The last 1/4 of the trail is not marked well at all. Look closely for the Carins.

BEST. HIKE. EVER. The most gorgeous view and destination point to lookout over. Definitely good incline to get those glutes working. Hiking boots highly recommended. 10/10 recommend.

Went 6/9/2020 and the trail was closed due to a fire issue, I suggest researching if it’s contained or not before going!

6/1 - access to trail on dirt road closed due to fire

Great hike and also there are a lot of connecting trails if you are interested in extending your hike. Bring plenty of water if you hike during summer months.

5/31/20 all points to trails are closed due to fire... FYI
