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 ...

Re: Current conditions in the Superstitions

@Alligatorjoe
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 AZ511.com (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...

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...

Re: Mount baldy loop camping spots and water sources

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