Re: Superstitions Water

It's the unnamed spring next to the trail. There was lots of water below the spring with algae in it so you can't miss it.

Re: Fires along Superstition Ridgeline

What was interesting to me is the following fine print on the map. That's why I felt okay hiking the Lost Goldmine trail as it is a county trail.

Re: Have you lost or almost lost your GPS?

I set a GPS unit on the top on my Jeep Liberty above the drivers door at Peralta trailhead after a hike. I forgot about it and drove off. When I got home I couldn't find the GPS and realized what I had done. I returned and looked for it but no luck so I gave up on it. My address and email were in th...

Re: Comet Neowise

I've been watching this comet in the evening. It's visible in the northwest sky below the big dipper. It's been about one third of the distance up from the horizon to the lower stars of the big dipper. It first becomes visible about 8:45 pm and gets better as the sky gets darker. After 9 pm you can ...

Re: Bush Fire

@azbackpackr Gisela was named after the heroine in the book Countess Gisela by E. Marlitt. The town schoolteacher was reading the book to her students when she was asked by her husband, the postmaster, to help name the little settlement. She asked the school children what names they liked, and they...

Re: SR 88 - Apache Trail

New rock slide by Roosevelt Lake. No access to the Apache Lake Marina or the cut route to Reavis North trailhead.

Re: Coronavirus and hiking

The Renaissance Festival is done early this year because of the virus. That makes Peralta trailhead access a bit better for the next few weekends and any drive back from Globe in the evening easier.

Re: Superstition Ridgeline Loop from First Water TH?

If you want to shave some miles off the 28 mile loop do a Reverse Flatiron and exit the Ridgeline at Fremont Saddle and use Peralta trail going back. The reason I used the Hieroglyphic trailhead on my solo Ridgeline Loop was to have a bail out option half way if needed. It's a long hike.

Re: Hydration - Water isn't the best

This quote from the article contradicts the list. I don't think OJ & Cola should be above water. "But here's where it gets tricky: Beverages with more concentrated sugars, such as fruit juices or colas, are not necessarily as hydrating as their lower-sugar cousins. They may spend a little more time ...
