While the Peralta Trailhead is open Peralta road is still closed. I wanted to hike to the trailhead to see if there are any signs present and if people are just driving around the closed signs (easy because local access is needed). The temps seemed to be okay for the long rolling hike so it was on. The Lost Goldmine trail has recently moved up in value. You can hike this trail to see how the western Superstitions used to look. :doh: The saguaros are nice along this stretch. I was surprised to see the Peralta Trailhead empty on arrival (7:45am) but within 5 minutes 2 vehicles pulled in. The occupants all hiked up the Peralta trail which is the only trail listed as closed on the website. :-$ I hiked up the Dutchman trail for a little way to get a view and scared about 8 javelina who took off in 3 different directions. While the early morning sun was blunted by the smoke above it was starting to warm up so I turned back. It seems like the closures are just leftovers from the fire which remain unchecked and unresolved. I emailed Pinal County on Friday (it shows the Peralta Road closure on their website) and they responded they would let me know if they had any information when it would reopen. Nice day on the trail but the air quality is not the best.
