I'm going to be taking a couple newbies out backpacking later this month and I have never been down Peralta past Freemont, so figured it would be a good chance to scout out the area and also stash some water. J and J and myself hit the trail right at sunrise and surprisingly only saw one other hiker. It was some guy out there looking for snakes. About 1/2 mile up the trail, I heard a weird singing coming from behind a tree. As I turned a corner there was a tent tucked away between bushes with someone just humming the morning song away. OK then.. Made it up to the saddle in just over an hour and then back down the other side. I knew about Pinyon Pine camp, but I heard there was another pretty good camp spot further north off Peralta. Hiked down to Pinyon and then another mile or less down the hill until we ran out of time. Dropped off the water, and looking down into that valley, I have a feeling the other campsite is down there somewhere... We didnt see anyone at all past Freemont. The hike back up the hill was pretty easy going. Passed several groups headed up and everyone was very friendly.. and then I heard the Grateful Dead and smelled the colitas... There was a group of about 5 or 6 that were just hanging out halfway up the trail jamming out to the Dead and getting higher than they probably already were. We flashed the peace signs and finished up the hike. Saw the hippy van in the parking lot and had no doubt who that belonged to! The J brothers had never been to the superstitions so they were very impressed by all the crazy rock formations and crazy characters out there. It should be a great backpack trip in a couple weeks!
