I have some friends that have recently taken up hiking and they asked me to take them to my favorite trails in the Superstitions. A few weeks ago, we hit Boulder Canyon and they loved it. This time around, I introduced them to the Peralta Trail, Lone Pine overlook and the Cave Trail back down.

The parking lot was mostly full when we arrived about 8am. We did see a good number of hikers along the way and up to the Fremont Saddle, but not as much as I encountered the last time up in February.

Nothing much to add to the triplogs on either of these trails, but it is always wonderful to take a "newbie" (or "newbies") up and down this area. Their kids did great, even on the Cave Trail. Real troopers for sure.

Nobody on the Cave Trail until we got past the Devil's Slide when we were passed by Patrick and Kristen Bulger, who had started up Carney to Robber Roost earlier and were finishing up their loop down the Cave Trail.

The Cave trail is one of my favorites in the western Supes. Never that crowded, but always so scenic. I am hoping the rugged path and steepness keeps it that way too.

All in all, a great day for hiking in the Superstitions!
