Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

I was watching the smoke from Peralta trail. The plane from Williams went out and back a few times.

Re: Current conditions in the Superstitions

I took my Jeep Patriot up to Woodbury Trailhead Sunday 3/3 with no trouble. I have 4wd but didn't need it. There is water crossing the road in spots but I didn't get into any mud.

Re: Tortilla Creek

511 had 88 closed at Tortilla Flat earlier but no longer list it. The snow will be melting tomorrow so if it is open that could change later in the day.

Re: Weather (roads/trail)

I doubt you'll get past Tortilla Flat with Tortilla Creek flowing. You'd need to drive around and come in from Roosevelt lake.

I checked (to be certain) and 88 is closed at Tortilla Creek at present.

Re: Superstitions in a Winter Storm

The worst spot might be where East Boulder, West Boulder and Little Boulder Canyons converge. I've waded through there after a rain but that was hours later so not at the highest flow. If you camp off Peralta trail or another high area you would be safe from flooding. Just be prepared to turn back i...

Re: True Confessions of HAZ

I used to think the HAZ Chinese kokopelli shirt translated to hikearizona until I ran into some Chinese hikers. One gentleman asked, "You want to raise taxes?" I guess that's a hike.

Re: Haunted canyon/ Tony's ranch

If you hike in from the Iron Bridge trailhead it's about 11.5 miles total (5.75 in + 5.75 out) to the Cabin. If you drive another 4 miles to the second Haunted Canyon trailhead it's about 8 miles total (4 in + 4 out) to the Cabin. The gate is at the Iron Bridge area. It has been there a while but yo...

The USGS map shows a different boundary. The north ridge is placed in the Apache National Forest.

Re: Black Mesa Lost-Hiker Memorial?

I've seen photos and looked for it twice on the way through there but never found it. The brush is tall enough that it would be easy to miss.

If you simply want a similar hike with running water look at Horton Creek, Parsons trail or Hell's Hole trail.

Re: Four Peaks from the Lake Roosevelt Side?

Considering the Renaissance Festival traffic and road construction on US 60 between Superior and Globe I'd take 87 through Fountain Hills for the present time. Big Daddy's Pizza is worth the stop.
