Yesterday was a perfect day to hike to Superstition Peak from Carney TH. I found the climb to West Boulder saddle to be the hardest part of the hike, and from there to the peak to be the most scenic (but still not easy!). This hike was invaluable to get a taste of what hiking the ridgeline will be like. I'm very familiar with the Flatiron hike, and now now the route from Carney to 5057. The best part of this hike was the solitude. There was only 1 other car at the Trailhead, and after passing those 2 hikers, I did not see a single other person until below west boulder saddle on the return trip. Next time I will definitely check out the Three sisters, but didn't have any remaining energy to do so this time. The only disappointment for me was that my gps went wonky about 3/4 of the way up during the ascent, and I didn't get a good reading the rest of the hike...am not sure if others have had issues with gps along the ridgeline (I use my cellphone for gps so that is probably part of the problem).
