Meet at 7:30 am (depart at 7:45) 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 8:15 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 scenic areas of the Superstitions. Expect some rocky trail conditions, but it's 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 the First Water Trailhead.

Bring water, snacks, boots, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and $ for carpool.

Cost to non-members is $5.

Guests and new members should contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
