Superstition superloop was planned as a two day hike. Total hiking time was roughly 15 hours. Day one was 10 hours and day two 5 hours.

Day one left peralta at 7am towards coffee flats. Then past dripping springs and red tanks. Red tanks had loads of fresh water so I refilled and had lunch. Good thing becaus the climb over the red tank divide was brutal. Not so much the elevation but the route is very poor. Overgrown and lots of dead ends. It lost my way may times. Very slow progress and lost maybe an hour. Recommend you stay close to the wash. Everytime I went up I lost my way. Next I kept pushing to make up time and find water and camp. Finally aside from stale water and spring canyon I made it to oak spring. Perfect setting and drank my fill with dinner and breakfast.

Day 2 made good progress leaving at 7am via lost dutchman and linking up with peralta canyon. Route and trail easy to follow and well maintained. Didnt find any water but had enough from oak spring.
