“This steep trail leads to to a great overlook of Weavers Needle.”— Craig DiCarlo
Family Friendly A manageable distance for the older kids with plenty to see and explore along the way.
In early spring, you'll find water flowing through the canyon. At the overlook to Weavers Needle, you'll enjoy breathtaking views of the more of the Superstitions. Take a lunch or snack to enjoy at the overlook. Also, be sure to bring plenty of water as this is the desert, and it is unforgiving. When you are done enjoying the views, hike back the way you came.
