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.

The Peralta Trail hike is one of the most popular trails in the Superstitions. There are panoramic views at Freemont Saddle, including Weaver's Needle. From Freemont Saddle, we will return on the Cave Trail, which is a more difficult, poorly defined trail on mostly rock surface, but it has great views of Peralta Canyon to the west and Barks Canyon to the east.

The hike will take approx. 4 hours. Bring a minimum of 2 liters of water, electrolytes, lunch or snack, and $ for carpool. Wear hiking boots, sunscreen, sunglasses, and hat. Hike will be cancelled in case of rain. Cost to non-members is $5.
