Mostly Dry - Several little stream crossings but the water was pretty low, enough to stay dry. Check recent rain or bring extra socks History

Getting forecast...

Features Views

Family Friendly A manageable distance for the older kids with plenty to see and explore along the way.

Overview

Great views of the Superstition Wilderness greet hikers at every turn, culminating with the awesome overlook at Weavers Needle.

Need to Know

Bring water and sun protection for the desert environment.

Description

This is a wonderful out and back route, and the effort-to-satisfaction ratio is high on this trail. Though the trail continues on for a longer outing, the shorter distance provided by this out and back route makes this an easy enough option for the whole family, including your four legged friends. The trail is pet friendly.

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.

Great hike - temp about 95 - we had plenty of water and found a nice shady cave along the trail to have some snacks to fuel our return trip. Lizards!
