This hike has been rescheduled due to being rained out in December.

Meet at 8:30 am (depart at 8:45) at the Burger King, just south of US 60 at the NE corner of Power Rd. and Superstition Springs Blvd. OR meet us at the First Water Trailhead no later than 9:15 am.

This is one of the classic Superstition hikes with great scenery. Good trail, with rolling ups and downs, but sometimes rocky. This loop hike involves the Second Water Trail, the Black Mesa Trail, and the Dutchman Trail.

Bring a minimum of 2 liters of water, electrolytes, lunch, and $ for carpool. Wear appropriate footwear, sunscreen, and hat.

Cost to non-members is $5. Guests and new members should contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
