Description

This relatively short hike leads up to the foothills of the Superstition Mountains. Start at the Crosscut Trailhead and head southeast along a rugged dirt trail through low desert cactus. Massacre Grounds will appear on the left as a wedge-like outcropping. Continue onward to reach Massacre Falls which intermittently runs depending upon recent rainfall.
