In anticipation of some interesting weather, we headed out on the spine of the superstitions hoping to encounter a little rain, clouds, and maybe some snow.

It was a great day to be out but the weather only provided a few periods of light rain. No snow, and we were off the spine before the most dramatic clouds of the day socked in. Oh well. It was a great day to be up there. I really enjoy seeing these places when they're not clear and sunny. You can find that pretty much any time you want!

I always enjoy this one, and as usual, it kicked my butt. It was nice to finally put a face to the superstitionguy avatar who helped us out with the shuttle. Thanks!

Road
Paved - Car Okay

To Siphon Draw Trailhead
From Mesa follow Highway 60 East to Idaho Road. Turn North onto Idaho Road which is SR88 and follow North 2.2 miles. SR88 bends right just past Scenic St. and Idaho continues North. Be sure to go right and stay on SR88. Follow SR88 4.9 miles to the Lost Dutchman State Park. Turn right into the park. Pay the fee then follow the signs to the trailhead.

Free Alternative:
Utilize the Crosscut Trailhead 0.7 mi in on FR78. It is 2 miles on Jacobs Trail #58 to the junction with Siphon Draw #53. Which is 0.85 mi into #53.
2.00 - 0.85 = 1.15 mi extra each way
