Meet at 9:00 am (depart at 9:15) at the Holiday Inn, east side parking area, just south of US 60 on Country Club Dr. in Mesa; or meet group at the First Water trailhead no later than 10:00 am. This scenic loop hike is my favorite short Superstitions hike. I'll lead it slower than normal in hopes of giving slower hikers an opportunity to enjoy one of the most scenic areas of the Superstitions. Expect some rocky trail conditions, but not too difficult overall. We'll go from the First Water trailhead to Garden Valley, follow a horse trail to Hackberry Springs, and then return to First Water. Bring water, lunch or snack, boots, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and $ for carpool. Cost to non-members is $5.
