Hiked this trail last weekend (10/28/2001) and absolutely loved it. Arrived at the trailhead at around noon and got back at about 5pm. Once you're up there, its hard to leave - the beautiful weather made this hike absolutely serene and our group of 5 saw not another human soul for the duration of our stay. The native wildlife was out and about though. We saw quail, hawks, many lizards, massive bighorn sheep(!), beautiful clear views of the surrounding area, and TONS of hieroglyphics. Locals on horseback at the trailhead informed us that the rattlers were out and about but we didnt see any. Sadly, as the previous trail comments inform, many idiots have taken the liberty to make their own glyphs as well which really is sad.

What a wonderful time of year to enjoy the valley resident's closest hiker-heaven - the Superstitions!

Warning: heat kills!
Avoid 8am to 5pm over 90 degrees. Prehydrate & stay hydrated.
Hikebot recommends using an umbrella to block the sun.
