HIKED THIS FROM FIRST WATER TRAILHEAD ON A NICE SATURDAY...TEMP WAS AROUND 102 AT THE PEAK OF THE DAY, NOT TOO BAD...DIDNT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS I MADE WHEN GOING UP SUPERSTITION PEAK, I BROUGHT 5 LITRES OF WATER WITH ME THIS TRIP, AND STILL THAT WAS JUST THE MINIMUM THAT I NEEDED. I COULD HAVE REALLY NEEDED MAYBE JUST ANOTHER HALF LITRE. WOW IS THE SHORTEST SUMMARY WORD I CAN COME UP WITH TO DESCRIBE THIS TRAIL. THIS IS DEFENANTLY ONE OF MY FAVORITE TRAILS HERE IN AZ SO FAR. RIGHT NEXT TO MT HUMPHREY IN MY BOOK. THE START OF IT WAS A LITTLE HARD TO FIND AS THE CAIRN WAS ACROSS THE CREEK OFF OF BOULDER CANYON TRAIL. ITS THE BOULDERING ROCK CLIMBING THAT WAS GREAT, NOTHING TOO WIMPEY, BUT AT THE SAME TIME NOTHING TOO HARD WHERE YOU NEED SPECIAL EQUIPTMENT. THAT FIRST CLIMB TO GET ABOARD THE "USS SUPERSTITION" BATTLESHIP MT, WAS PROBABLY THE HARDEST, TO GET UP AND DOWN. GOING UP SOME OF THE CLIMBS WAS MAKING I WONDER HOW THE HELL WAS I GONNA GET DOWN THAT, BUT WHEN I CAME TO THAT PART OF THE HIKE IT SEEMED A LITTLE EASIER GOING DOWN, CAUSE YOU GET A LITTLE BETTER VIEW OF GOOD FOOTHOLDS. SIGNED IN THE PEAK GUEST BOOK, ATE SOME LUNCH, ENJOYED THE VIEWS, GAVE THANKS AND PRAISE AND HEADED DOWN. I AGREE WITH WHAT FRITZKE SAID, IF YOUR AFRAID OF HEIGHTS....SKIP OUT ON THIS ONE! VISIONS OF VERTIGO FOR ALMOST THE ENTIRE HIKE YOU WILL HAVE!
