Meet at 10:00 am (depart at 10:15) 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 10:45 am. 

This hike was cancelled on the 10th because of rain, muddy road conditions, and my flu.

This scenic loop hike is my favorite short Superstitions hike.  I have recovered enough from a knee injury to do this one, but I might take an extra break or two.  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 the First Water Trailhead. 

Bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, sunglasses, hiking boots, and $ for carpool.  As always, check the club website before leaving home in case rain is forecasted.

Cost to non-members is $5.  Only guests and new members need to contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
