If you don't have a 4WD vehicle, a decent clearance 2WD can get you to a spot on the north side of the road where the road splits to Rogers Trough trailhead where you can park next to an 'use' trail that short-cuts west over to the Woodbury trailhead. This facilitates a full loop hike that finishes by following the 4WD road back down from Rogers TH and adds about 3 miles to the hike.

Personally I did not care much for the JF trail finding it a rather dull and arduous climb to Tortilla Pass (did the loop clock-wise) and most of the way down to Rogers Canyon where you'll encounter copious thickets of Prickly Acacia trying to reclaim the trail.

For my money, for any future hikes to the ruins and Angel Basin, I'll stick with an out and back on Rogers Canyon Tr. This is indeed a wonderful trail with lots of shade and running water in the wet season. The ruins are surprisingly well preserved and the Basin itself is exquisite.

On the Dutchman Trail at a point between Parker Pass and the Black Mesa Trail intersection is a cave fairly high up the slope on the north beneath the face of the cliff on Black Mesa. It is called Dead Women's Cave. In the Superstition Mountains there are over 160 unsolved murder mysteries. In the 1920s, a woman's skeleton was found inside this cave. She was never identified and who killed her was never determined. The seleton was reported to be in tact and laying peacefully on the cave room floor. Since then, treasure hunters dug up the cave looking for possible treasures, but none were ever found.

Just beyond the Black Mesa intersection near the Bull Pass intersection is where they found Adolph Ruth's skull in 1931. His skull appeared to have bullet holes. Although his death was recorded as natural, many believe he was killed for his maps and information pertaining to the Lost Dutchman mine.

The top of Black Mesa is the starting point for a hike that goes cross country down to Second Water spring as described in Carlson's 'Hikers Guide to the Supes'. I would not recommend this hike as it starts right in the center of the 'cholla forest' and is mostly a cactus whack all the way down. Very unrewarding for the effort. There are many signs of cattle in this area and it is my understanding that these are feral cattle who are the descendants of cattle left on the range when it was declared a Wilderness Area and thereafter banned to ranching operations.

Bill Barkley, son of Tex Barkley, built a ranch and had a large operation in the area till 1972 when they moved north to be just outside the wilderness area. Remnants of their ranch can be found on the south side of Second Water trail next to the east bank of First Water Creek.

My wife and I intended on doing a hike to the Spanish Hieroglyphs today, but it was just too darn hot! We got to Parker Pass and there was not a breeze and we were already soaked with sweat. I should have known better, but that Dutchman trail can be such a pleasant hike in beautiful weather. Oh well.

When you cross the FW Creek for the last time at about a 1.5 miles, that is indeed the starting point for the UFWC hike which does follow the UFW Creek bed SSE to its head waters at the base of Superstition Mtn.

At the top of Parker Pass itself is a easily spotted 'use' trail that heads SE up the side of the hill on your right toward Tim's Saddle. This is the starting point for acces to West Boulder Cyn and Willow Spring, and also to O'Grady Cyn and the return from the UFWC loop hike.

After five trips to the top of the Flatiron in the past year, I have finally found the plane wreck I always heard was there. This was actually the first time I made a concerted effort to find it and I spent about two hours looking in all the wrong areas. But hey, the weather was gorgeous and I love poking around up there anyway so its all good.

I have seen pieces of the wreckage on prior trips that were obviously brought part way down by idiot boneheads and then abandoned along the side of the trail. That is SO NOT cool. A hands off policy should apply to any historical site or artifact, but disturbing the site of a fatal plane crash is very disrespectful. Being an aviator myself, I found the scene very somber and deserving of a prayer.

This USAF T-38 Supersonic Trainer was the same type aircraft I flew for a three year
period about five years after this accident occurred in 1971. Judging from the information on the cross, I would guess that he was a student on a night solo mission which is a very nervous and stressful initial experience. Spatial disorientation and the ensuing panic are of constant concern. Although rare, it is both ironic and sad that I also lost a friend and fellow student in my squadron the night of our first solo and I was the only eye witness. He flew a perfectly good airplane into the flat, black emptiness of the West Texas terrain.

Out of respect for this site I feel compelled to not divulge the location to the general
public. On the other hand if any regular member of the HAZ Forum would like directions, please feel free to email me any time. ( Click on 10/03/01 photo date above for photos )

I was BRUTALIZED!! By the wind, that is.

The day Rusty and I headed out (9/6/01) it was 104F in the valley and the entire state cloudless except for what appeared to be a stationary dome of cloud over the San Fransisco Peaks. It turned out to be anything but stationary. The force of the wind against the mountain acted somewhat like an airfoil. Any moisture in the air quickly condensed as it was forced up and over the low pressure created at the top and then just as quickly evaporated on the down side.

I would estimate sustained winds from 40mph at the saddle increasing to 50+mph at the summit. I've always said, 'Nothing like a good sand blasting in the morning'.

With the wind chill factor approaching freezing, my fingers and ears finally became completely numb. I could tell the local veterans, they were the ones wearing the full body North Face nylon outfits.

The wind continued to gather strength and actually made it difficult to stay balanced on the descent. By the time I re-entered the tree line on the way down, the wind had dropped into that area also and it was kind of spooky hearing a couple trees crash down in the distance.

One heck of a workout, very well maintained trail, and a great hike!

For those of you with a sense of adventure, try the hike without touching any of the artificial protection (cables, ladders, nets, etc.). Only rudimentary skills are required and it gives you a small taste of what it was like for the original climbers.

Also checkout the level of noise the freeway creates on the east side as opposed to the west. Amazing!

Hot summer weather got you down?  Having withdrawal symptoms?  I've got a great little 'fix' for you.  Try checking out the sunset on Weavers Needle.  The entire portion of Peralta Canyon to Fremont Saddle is completely shaded from late afternoon on.  Plan to be up at the Saddle about one half hour prior to official sunset.  

The evening I went it was 105F in the valley and I barely even broke a sweat on the way up.  (Soaked my T-shirt and a bandana with some water and hit the trail at 6:15PM)

The sunset views at the top are sweet and there was a wonderful steady breeze blowing across the saddle.  The canyon has a completely different look and feel than it does in the early AM.

Make sure to take a headlamp or flashlight for the way down, which is a neat experience in itself.

The
Lone Fire sure did a job on this
area.
 Fallen logs across the path are too
numerous to count and probably increase with each new windstorm.  Most
of the
re-growth appears to be Oak saplings
and will probably look awesome about the time I die at a ripe old age.

    The trail up the final ridge is well defined and the
small
slot ravine to the top is easy to spot.  My wife Karen was a bit
daunted by the
level of bouldering required,
not to mention hauling up the pooch, so we opted for the hike down the
backside as opposed to the down climb as a return.

    Although the
views were
spectacular, our stay at
the top was a
bit short-lived.  Apparently we were uninvited guests at a Ladybug orgy
of
mythical proportions.  They seemed
to be enjoying the experience to the point of rudeness, so we left like a
couple prudes in utter disgust.  Now you know where that cute little so
called "lady" bug you see in your backyard has been spending her
Saturday nights!

    The hike down the back was a bit bushy.  The all too
familiar scenario of the "faint trail" slowly succumbing to well
watered vegetation.

    Planned to do a loop return, but unable to locate the
Amethyst intersection.  No signage or cairns to be seen.

    What would I compare this hike to?  The Flatiron
comes immediately to mind.  The Iron is definitely more strenuous in
that it climbs nearly a 1000' more vertical in about the same distance.
 The final climb up Brown's is more technically demanding and exposed
than anything on the Flatiron.  

Side note 1:  Ran into a couple on the way
up who saw a mountain lion on the trail.  Awesome!  Hey, I spotted
some jets flying over.

Side note 2:  Check out this
accident
we came upon when returning on the Apache Trail by Canyon Lake.  Both
occupants miraculously survived, but alcohol suspected.  Be careful out
there.  Don't know about you, but it's not the mountain lions, bears,
or snakes I'm really worried about.

Really nice trail and great rewards to boot! With most of the trail at elevations between four and five thousand feet, a great choice for those warmer days.

For most of the way to Angel Basin the trail is well shaded , but bring some insect repellant because the Gnats can be Gnarly! The trail follows a beautiful seasonal stream all the way to the dwellings and a little further on to Angel Basin.

The Dwellings are awesome, and there is no doubt as to why those Indians chose this location - what a little slice of Heaven. But I'll move on to Angel Basin since the description above has plenty of pics and info on the ruins.

About a half mile further down Rogers Canyon it opens up & into beautiful Angel Basin. At the center of the basin you will see the intersection with Frog Tanks Trail. This is an outstanding area for a picnic or overnight camp.

From here I would recommend returning by the same route. I did it as a loop hike connecting with the JF Trail, which I didn't particularly care for.

Awesome is the only word for it.  The vistas of spectacular rock walls and
formations are about as good as it gets.  Don't forget to look back over
your shoulder for a great view of
Canyon
Lake before you begin your
descent
into Boulder Canyon.

Great intermediate hike.  I did it as a short-shuttle hike from Canyon Lake
taking Boulder Canyon and Second Water trails back over to First Water
trailhead.  Lots of
neat things
to look at in the canyon.  The creek is gorgeous when its
running. 
The old Indian Paint Iron Mine is
just up in the saddle north of Battleship Mtn. as you depart the creek bed. 
Enjoy!

This is a great little hike for guests or kids. Because the road to the trailhead is not marked or maintained, this area tends to be less crowded too. Once you know what it looks like and exactly where it is, you'd be surprised at how you can spot the waterfall from many other distant trails further east.

Best described as "a solid five
hoodoos".

Joe was right.  This was the longest
9.5 mile hike I've ever seen!  Figure
on climbing till you can't climb any more,
and you're probably about halfway up. 
Then you go down for awhile and do it all
over again some more.  How can this be
fun you ask?  I don't know, adrenalin,
endorphins, deranged from altitude sickness,
whatever, but it was a blast!!! 

Kidding aside, this is a very strenuous
hike, but definitely within reach for a
conditioned hiker.  The trail is fairly
defined and well cairned with the exception
of some sketchy sections right in the
middle.  When confronted with a decision,
we tended to stay high which I feel is a
good overall policy, but not without
exception.  If you can determine the
most traveled path or see a cairn, go with
that.  Although really impossible to
get lost, you could lose valuable time
foundering around. 

It took us nine hours and I felt we kept up
a very respectable pace throughout. 
When I had the feeling we were really
chewing up some distance, we would stop to
check our maps and it was like NOT! I gotta
a real problem with my mapping software
showing this thing as 9.5 miles.  From
my personal experience it seems much longer. 
I have been on some bushwhacks that slow you
to a crawl - this is not one of them. 
Aside from some slowing for steep climbs and
to navigate through rough sections, this
hike moves right along for the most part. 
At a total of 9.5mi, we did little better
than 1mph.  Oh well, we're a couple old
guys and we suck.  I can live with
that.

As far as Hieroglyphic Canyon being an
escape route, I would seriously consider
selling my house to pay for a chopper before
I attempted the wicked descent into that
canyon. Enough said - don't get hurt.

The day we went it was 85F in the valley. 
I wouldn't want to do it if it were any
hotter.  I went through my entire
115oz. of water.

This is a really awesome hike I think I will
want to do it at least once a season if not
more.

This is a popular trail, and for good reason.  There
is a lot of history along the way and Garden Valley will
be especially lush this spring when all the Mesquites fill
in.

It is a fairly easy trail and for those interested in a
little something extra try a little mini loop over to
Second Water Springs.  Its the site of an
old
mining camp and is quite secluded and picturesque.

About
halfway down the hill into
Second water canyon you may spot a faint trail heading
right across the ravine.  This trail will take you
across the ravine and will
contour
around the gentle hillside through some open areas
with ample signs of wild cattle.  About halfway to
the springs it will kind of die out, but just continue to
contour and you will come to the creek bed and Second
Water Springs stands out as
the
very lush, green area.

To return is a little bit of a bushwhack, but well worth
it.  Just go down stream in the narrow rock walled
creek bed all the way till you hit Second Water trail at
the bottom of the canyon. Just before you get to the trail
you will encounter some large Elephant grass.  Don't
give up here because the trail is hidden just on the other
side of that tall grass.

Really fun and challenging hike. The first part is a lot like the upper portion of the Flatiron, but with no warm up - the thighs start burning right out of the chute! The trail to West Boulder Saddle is well marked and easy to follow. At the saddle I was rewarded with a view of the back side of the Superstitions blanketed with snow against a crystal blue sky. The beauty was really indescribable. The downside was that I had to do the remainder of the hike to Fremont Saddle in six inches of snow and ice. Beautiful, but slippery! I was able to spot sparse markers all the way across to the last slope up to the ridge overlooking East Boulder Canyon. Here I went too far left and came out overlooking Weavers Needle - not good. Traversed the ridge line back to the right (SE) till I picked up a marker at the top of a small steep boulder filled ravine (should be spotting Fremont at a NNE heading). Descending this ravine and the slope down to the Saddle was pretty hairy in all that snow - did most of it on my butt. At this point I had my fill and opted for a nice leisurely stroll back down Peralta to my waiting bike.

If you have any juice left after scoping
the Flatiron and before heading back down, you must check out

the "real" top of Superstition Mt.(5000'+).
It is awesome. The views to the east and north are just as breath taking as

the Flatiron is to the west. Finding the trail to the top is a little tricky
as I found out the hard way. Go up the trail immediately due east of where you
top out of the gully (or where you go back down) to the exact center of the
saddle. Look left and you should see

a small rectangular boulder
sitting alone
on the smooth rock with some stones piled on it. This is the start point. You
will then see a wall of large boulders blocking your path up through the open
area to the top. Bear right around these three or

four huge rocks and you will find a relatively well worn path to the top.
You'll actually have to go through

a cool tunnel
formed from
fallen boulders on the way up. Once at the top check out the circular formation
of hoodoos down and to the east. Does it remind you of "Stone Henge"? You can
also see parts of the "Ridgeline
Trail". Also there is supposedly two small
plane wrecks up there on the north side - not sure where, but did see someone
bringing a small piece down one time.

This is a really 'fun' trail. Once you've done it you'll never want to make your return back down Peralta. Throw the Needle Overlook in there for a great little loop hike. The path is actually quite well worn and the bare rock areas are well marked with cairns. Lots of neat changing terrain features. Take your time and enjoy!

Anybody who gets to the top of Peralta Trail (Fremont Saddle) and isn't entirely spent, should do two things. First, take the extra 15 minutes and hike over to the Weavers Needle Overlook - it is very cool. Then as an alternative to returning back down Peralta, the Cave Trail return is totally worth it. It is relatively easy to follow between the worn path and cairn markers. Although it does appear that there may be numerous variations, if you pretty much stick to the Peralta side base of the big rock formations at the top of the ridge you'll be fine. Just give yourself plenty of time to explore some very interesting spots on the way down. On a saddle beyond Geronimo Cave and maybe beyond the Fortress (I don't quite recall) I found two rather well worn paths, one heading north back up toward the Barks Canyon side of the formations and another heading down to the east as if into Barks Canyon. Followed them each a ways but don't know where they end up. Have fun!

This trail is must for the resume of any local serious day hiker. Its a great vertical workout followed by an awesome reward at the top. Once you get to the top, you don't want to come back down. There are many secondary trails on the top and your curiosity runs wild. Met an old guy coming down on my way up who said he could normally make it up in an hour and a half, that's really humping it! I took two hours. Just above the smooth rock falls area there is a faint trail that goes right (west) out on to the first promontory below and west of the Flatiron. Following the trail is a bit of a challenge (keep heading up and west), but it is a little shorter and much less vertical if you don't want to go all the way up. The view is still breathtaking, and judging by the number of fire pits, it looks like a popular place place to take in the city lights on an overnight. Once you do the Flatiron you'll want to do it again soon!

This is a a wonderful, casual, and therapeutic hike. Many changes in topography along the way. Recommend a counter-clockwise direction starting east on the Dutchman Trail. Barkley Basin is beautiful low desert and goes fast. When you turn North at the Coffee Trail intersection the climb is gradual all the way up to the summit at the Whiskey Springs intersection. For a side trip to Miners Needle, follow a faint trail just prior to the intersection that heads left back up a ridge on the north side of the Needle. The segment from Whiskey intersection to the Bluff Springs intersection goes fast. Things slow down a bit from there, but the scenery going south on Bluff Springs is awesome. I took 4 1/2 hours round trip, but budget enough time so you don't have to hurry.
