The Wave Cave has been on the list for a while, just haven't been able to fit it in. A few weeks ago we scheduled it as our New Years Day hike. However, at that time, we had no idea just how cold it was going to be and that snow would be mixed in. The day before we discussed if we were still going to stick with the plan or try something else due to the weather. The morning of we decided we would head out and just see what happens.
There was a good amount of Snow on the Superstitions this morning. We arrived at Carney Springs Trailhead and it was packed. We headed out, found the tree for the turn off and we were set. I was worried about route finding after reading the description, but the trail is pretty obvious for the most part. The snow was nice, it wasn't enough to cause any issues.
The cave was cool, in several ways, it was cold. We surfed, snacked, chilled, then headed down. On our way up we passed 1 group of people coming down. On our we down we passed several groups headed up, and the small parking area was packed, people were even parked in the road.
Really enjoyed this one, distance wise its short, but the climb makes you pay, and the cave is a good reward for that climb. The snow was a nice touch, I'm glad we didn't reschedule as we got some unique pictures of the area.
The Trail decription was right on in helping us find our ways, some of the distances were a little off, but close enough. on the way back we ended up on a trail that crossed the wash a little bit higher up but it got us were we needed.
