It’s been many moons since I have ventured into this side of Peter’s Canyon. My hiking friends wanted to visit some place new, so so figured this would be a good one to introduce them to this part of the Superstitions.

With the expected 100+ high, I didn’t think we would make it all the way to the Cave. That’ll be another time in the cooler months. There was a slight flow along Tortilla Creek as we took off from the Tortilla Flats parking area. As we climbed up the little hill and down to the creek on the other side, the flow was no more than a trickle. There were large algae filled pools everywhere.

We made our way to the Peter’s/Tortilla junction and started up. The creek was flowing more steady in here and there was no stagnant pools and lots of little falls. The youngest child of my friends was not having it for much more boulder hopping right at the start of the big rocks, so us guys went up past the the first gigantor boulders and decided to turn around there. There were several large pools we would have to wade through. Fall or winter for those.

We made it back the same way we came in and headed back to the truck.

It was humid and getting a little toasty for my tastes by the time we made it to “The Flats”. My friends really enjoyed the canyon though. It is an amazing spot for sure!
