This "trail" was not really a trail. No signage, no markers.
Just dirt trails that bifurcated everywhere. The area suffers from years of neglect by the Forest Service. But, if you want to see horses, they are certainly around.

Quite an enjoyable break from the usual desert scenery. Plenty of water, shade, and wildlife. Great for kids, more of a stroll than a hike.

As stated, nice inclined walk for "urban hiking". It's covered in garbage at the top.

Great trail, awesome incline towards the peak. Lots of loose rock but almost no crowd! Great views of the whole valley. Parked on Tatum and used trail 100 to meet with the trail to the peak.

The hike was easy and didn’t take a long time to complete

Great hike , fantastic views, bring water, sunscreen, map, portable phone charger etc. FYI there is no permit needed to park, hike or camp in the superstition wilderness, however you cannot camp in the parking lots. This hike is in the superstition wilderness and starts at peralta trailhead. You can leave your vehicles overnight in the parking lot. The superstition wilderness is part of the Tonto National Forest. The Tonto National forest starts at the sign about a third of a mile from the trailhead. That first 6.5 (approx) miles of dirt road is state land and you are supposed to have a permit to camp park etc on that land. Other rules for the wilderness are posted at the trailhead. During the hiking season, normally October to April there are volunteers at the trailhead to answer questions; usually until noon. Peralta trailhead parking lot fills up by 9am on weekends, but there is overflow parking about a quarter mile down the road.

Easy to get to and works for a variety of people.

Got stopped by search and rescue on the way to Whiskey Spring Red Tanks Miners Canyon Loop. Planned to do a over nighter there. Search and Rescue warned us not to go out there. They had said it is inhabitable and totally overgrown. So they advised us to do Weavers Needle and it was great.

Even having a physical hard copy map and the AllTrails App open the mileage markers are off. We ended up taking Peralta Trail up to Weavers Needle and camped out off the trail. I posted pictures of potential Weavers Needle back-country camp sites (see my completed list in the profile if you are planning to go back country camping). Great views around, it was a amazing time. It would be my luck though that it would rain. Which lasted 15 hours making the rocks in the morning slippery. The trail has lots of lose rock and minimal cover from the sun. I would agree with others in bringing enough water. Would definitely go back was a amazing experience. Enjoy.

Took the kids here first days. They did great! We went and looped around to the Church and then back to the parking lot. Kids 5,9,12 managed wonderfully.

It was ok, to many people but easy.

not a hike just a nice little walk lots of trash at the top :c

My first hike last year visiting... Easy and bathrooms along the way. Little pools with small waterfalls near the top if I can recall correctly. Very scenic and memorable.

Great easy trail. It was marked as moderate but I would classify as easy. Good for running and very little change in elevation

my favorite for walking, running and biking!

Nice short challenging trail.

First trail in Sedona for me. Enjoyed it immensely. Good easy trail with a rewarding beautiful view at the end. Gr6time

Very dog friendly. Pretty well marked as well. Great views. For you coffee drinkers, there’s a bathroom at the parking lot. Don’t forget your parking pass. It’s not too steep at any one spot and for the most part there are not a lot of loose rocks on the path.

Great drive especially for those not wanting to get to far from the city. Found a few hiking spots on this road too. There aren't necessarily marked but some are legitimate trails. I found them using this app.

Incredible trail with some gorgeous views throughout. IMO harder than it appears. Definitely bring more water than you think you need and sunscreen as exposed most of the route.

Should be rated: hard – easy – hard. The climbs up on both sides are narrow, Rocky, rugged and steep - another words, wonderful if you like that kind of thing as I do. The loop at the bottom though is mostly flat and boring unless the neighbors happened to be standing there buns by the pool or invite you in for a refreshing dip along the way. Even so, nice work out; a beautiful hike

love the views and nice and easy!

Short, simple hike. Pretty steep at some parts, but not too bad due to how short it is.
Beautiful view over the city!

This trail does not go all the way around. The bridge to cross over does not have a way back on the trail on the other side of the lake. At least not right away, hard to see since there’s construction going on. Hope this makes sense. I’ll try and take a pic for reference

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! A different beauty from any other park we have ever visited! My husband & I have enjoyed this hike in February...though it is 50 degrees, the sun warmed us up quickly. The desert color has been spectacular and the ridge trail that this trail leads you to (Lorraine Lee Trail) is a MUST SEE and DO NOT forget your GOOD CAMERA! I did it twice this weekend!

Went hiking on this trail with the whole and it was very enjoyable. Not much elevation gain so it is great for all hiking skill ranges. Lots of wildlife for my biologist daughter to see.

Great trail to drink a 40 and smoke a j.

Saw so many wonderful birds from dozens of hummingbirds to the precious little owl in the ladies's restroom (complete with directions to 'Do Not Disturb') to egrets and 2 stately pelicans who should sign up for synchronized swimming and diving at the Olympics! We tried to hustle a little to do the exercise thing, but there were SO many delightful distractions! Only complaint....no maps or bird ID charts in the box, so we wandered a bit.

Gorgeous scenery, almost no one on the trail beyond the Saddle. It took 6 hours with a lunch break. I did it on a cloudy day and it was exhausting. Definitely bring more water than you think, food and sun protection!
