A hike in the Supes with two guys who have been to a lot of places but never hiked up on Battleship Mountain before. We started early and got side tracked a few times. I learned of at least 6 new hidden things and we hadn't made it to Boulder Creek from Second Water trail yet. Those things would be 3 mines and 3 petroglyph areas and a natural water tank location. I was able to point out a ruins location on the hill that they had never seen before so I got to contribute. The hike up Boulder Creek was uneventful but it was nice to see water still flowing in spots.
Once at the saddle spur trail we hiked up the hill and on to the south end. Jack and Steve were impressed with the views from the start. We made our way across at an even pace stopping to look over adjacent areas. Next we hiked to the north end and back up to the summit.
After a snack break we hiked back down and took an off trail route along the west side of Battleship. I think we saw 5 mining claims. One had a rusty can but no claim paper inside.
We finished up at about 5p as there were two other hikers coming in. They had copies from Superstition Trails West and had been looking for Cross Butte. Jack told them he named that spot and from there the conversation lasted at least 20 minutes. Another interesting day in the Superstitions.
