I am trying to get a permit for 2 of us and I can’t get thru the phone lines. I have called continuously but no answer. Any suggestions on how else I can purchase a couple nights stay for 2 possibly 3 of us? Would they help me if I drive all the way there? Please email me if you have suggestions : chapis503@outlook.com

The park, facilities and trail are really well maintained. I was impressed with the condition of our route. the cables were secure and even though I was nervous at the technical footing required, I didn't feel like I was putting myself at risk. I'm so glad we hiked in spring. The green desert was overwhelming and flowers were popping up everywhere.
I am in decent physical shape and exercise regularly. I would not recommend this trail for someone who is not active. It's an amazing climb, but tough. I used my upper body more than I expected to. Also, wear good shoes, bring lots of water and snacks, and wear gloves! The cables and gripping rocks are no joke.

Great hike, a bit hard at times but manageable. Once at the top it is amazing, I would do this one again. I would definitely recommend to bring gloves and the right kind of shoes for hiking. I seen lots of people who were not prepared.

AMAZING. Honestly no words.

Beautiful hike with a well maintained and marked trail. Loved this hike!

Very nice trail. Good signposts. Lots of people. Safe area for lone hikers. Incredible views of the valley.



A long trek well earned with a beautiful destination

Easy to go off trail. could be marked better. But a great hike.

Loved this hike! Views were stunning along the entire trail! pretty steep incline the whole way up, but the view was totally worth it. We finished the trail in about 4 hours. We are in our early 20's and are experienced hikers.

First time doing this trail yesterday, and loved it. Definitely challenging and an excellent workout, the views from the top don't disappoint.

The top was worth every hard step I took. I’ve heard of the staying to the left but knowing me I ended up in the rock climbing trail that was very difficult but lead me to the top. A beautiful trail with great views. Take lots of water at least 3 liters and snacks. Have fun!

They call it “Upper” Javelina for a reason! I’m a seasoned hiker, yet I struggled on the steep and continuous climb! At one point, I was scaling boulders—something for which I was not prepared. Consequently, I cut my hike short by taking the Hotel Spur Trail, which offers a shortcut back to the hotel. Tip: Grab a map at the trailhead and study it. The trails are color-coordinated. Once you figure that out, you’re good to go! Such a beautiful trail and a great workout!

Very intense long hike. The views are worth it in the end though. Just take it easy and break as much as you need. We hiked this when it was colder so I didn't drink as much water but I can imagine you would need to bring a lot more if you tried this during the summer months.

Hiked with a couple of friends. Challenging but very rewarding. Left before 8 am and was able to stay in the shadow of the mountain until the very top. Still drank lots of water as it was still a hot day. Got off trail a few times as the white dots and blue dots were not always distinguishable from natural white rocks. Legs got a good workout.

My so much of a hike as it is a rock climb! It's a scramble up rocks for about half of it. The view was amazing the whole way up, though. Getting to the top was insanely rewarding.
My boyfriend and I are collegiate athletes, swimmer and cross country, and we were able to finish the whole hike in about 3.5 hours. Bring lots of water and snacks.

This was a great *hike* - but I’d actually wanted to trail run. Unfortunately, the terrain was just too rocky to get a good cadence going at any point. Amazing views though, and I’d recommend for hiking.

Initially you will be hiking in a sandy wash area. Be on the

Such a beautiful place to go and see nature. The hike in was roughly 12 miles in (not the 10 everyone says). We checked in at the village and were on our way. There isn’t any signs along the way to let us know we were heading in the right direction so we used other hikers as our “guides” to know we were heading in the right direction. When we reached the first “fall” it was a disappointment (only because I thought that was where we were suppose to be and that was it). Keep going, pass the signs that say “Dangerous Unstable Ground” and pass the grave yard. When you are getting nervous you will never make it, just go a little further and you are there. This place is totally worth the sore muscles and exhaustion. We did put up our tent in close to the Natural Spring water (really made life easier to be so close to the fresh water). The hike out is daunting, tiring and makes you question every poor life choice but when you reach the top and are back in the comfort of your own vehicle, it makes you feel accomplished. Wear good supportive shoes, take ONLY what you need and hand sanitizer NEEDS to make it in your pack. Females, be prepared to “hover” in the bathrooms. Most importantly....enjoy the place....it’s absolutely beautiful and magical.

Love it. Beautiful views, good trail run.

This was a great all day hike, it turned out to be 8 miles total from where we were parked and back. Lots of hard work but the views were well worth it! Our group did not bring gloves but there were many who did, totally a personal preference. It was fine without them. Enjoy!

Loved it, not a lot of people around. Will definitely do this again.

A great day hike, 4-5 hours. We spent 4 hrs round trip including a half hour at the beautiful pool. Fairly strenous in places but views all along the way.

Started hike while the mountain was shrouded in clouds and mist. When we reached the basin, it was slick, yet doable at a cautious pace. Some small streams of water cascading off the cliffs. Very dramatic and beautiful scenery the entire climb. I brought my 11 year old son, and had to assist him quite a bit the last 1/2 mile as some of the boulders and rock climbing benefited a taller stature. We packed a hardy lunch, which we enjoyed every morsel as we took in what I consider probably the best view of the valley I have ever seen. Albeit we had decent hiking shoes, I would recommend wearing some with thicker souls. Descending we began to feel the jagged edges of rocks almost every step. Ouch! Overall, very satisfying hike. Went through almost 4 liters of water.

We got there right at 7 am so very little traffic. Very pretty. Ended up doing the bell rock climb at the end. Gorgeous. Well marked trail

little challenging towards the top, wasn't really sure where to go and no one around , so didn't continue. Did the circumference trail to add more length.

Moderate hike with nice views at the base of the Superstitions. Great to have this trail out of the Lost Dutchman SP campground.

Great hike! The dots are helpful and staying to the very left at the last little climb to the top is very helpful.

Absolutely loved this hike! It is pretty challenging but the trail is fairly easy to follow, just make sure to follow the white dots and when in doubt stay to the left. I also read a review that to the left of the wall at the end there is an easier route to get up to the top which was super helpful. This hike took us about 4.5 hours with spending 30 minutes at the top. Beautiful views from the top!
