Starting out at Rogers Trough TH, we headed down 1100 feet in elevation; 4.1 miles to the Salado Indian Cliff Dwelling. What an amazing place! I studied the inside of the cave and dwellings for some time. You could tell how the still-covered dwelling was the sleeping shelter, created so that a fire could be built in the center so that the inhabitants could be warm. There are smoke stains all along to underside of the dwelling's roof.
While all of the carvings of people's names on the inside of the dwelling makes me angry, I did see some names and dates from the early 1900's. I didn't see any from the 1800's.
After a PB&J sandwich and several pictures, we hiked back towards Rogers Trough TH, but we made a quick detour to see Elisha Reavis' grave. This was very exciting to us because both my uncle and I own Jack Carlson's Hiking the Superstitions book with Reavis on the cover.
It was a great day, with great company, and the views were amazing. I had never been on a 'real' 4X4 road before. It was awesome!

The wife and I started from the First Water TH and hiked until we reached the beginning of the Second Water Canyon. We turned around and hiked back. It was my wife's first time hiking from FW TH. We saw some beautiful views, 2 horses, 1 donkey, and lots of hikers. It was a special day that ended by splitting an order of Italian beef beer bread at Four Peaks Brewery. What a day!

A great shuttle hike up Telegraph Pass Trail from Ahwatukee to the National Trail. I headed east on the National Trail until I reached the Hidden Valley Trail. I took this short trail, went through Fat Man's Pass, and continued through the Hidden Valley until I met back up with the National Trail. Finally, I walked to the old Pima Canyon access road and eventually back to my which was in the very last parking space of the 48th/Guadalupe Th parking lot. Hence the total of 9.5 miles!

A beautiful day to hike after several days of rain. Hiked alone up to the Fremont Saddle. The fire service road up to the Peralta TH had six water crossings! This was a bit of a challenge in my 12 year sedan had some trouble, but I made it. Once on the trail, I really had to focus not getting my feet wet with the creek crossings as I forgot an extra pair of socks. This is my favorite hike. Not too long and a great view at the top.

This hike is called, "How to not find Reavis Falls" or "Damn you Reavis!". Instead of hiking up Reavis Creek, we ended up following the wrong cairns and hiking up Maple Spring until we came to a small narrow canyon with the water too deep to wade through. It was at this point that we finally realized that we might not be hiking up the right creek.

We didn't find the falls, I got my feet wet, I fell into a prickly pear cactus, I learned what cat's claw is, and I twisted my knee so that it now seems to hurt whenever I hike over five miles. I now know to load my GPS with the hiking coordinates of the trail I am following.

On a side note, I am pretty sure we saw some bear scat on the trail. That's a new one for me.

I'll be back Reavis Falls! You may have won this battle, but not the war. Damn you Reavis!

This is a great shuttle hike. Seeing the old rusted wheel barrow in Boulder Creek, the Painted Mine, and the views of Canyon Lake are amazing! I'll be doing this hike again.

Incidentally, I learned that I thought was Battleship Mountain is actually Geronimo. Battleship Mountain seems to blend into Geronimo when looking at it from the East.

First time hike up Telegraph Pass then followed the National Trail to the 48/Guadalupe TH. This is a great shuttle hike if you have an awesome wife who will pick you up and take you to you car at the Telegraph Pass TH.

An amazing hike, but boy was I tired! The views were incredible and I now look for the Flatiron every time I look at the Superstitions. It took just as long to go down as it did to go up. This hike really motivated me to get into better shape.

Took the wife up the Peralta trail to the Fremont Saddle. She loved the view of Weaver's Needle. It was a special day to get to share this hike with her.

A beautiful 7.5 mile hike in the Superstition Mountains today. Took the Second Water Trail to Boulder Creek and then hiked out. The water was flowing due to a rain earlier in the week. The Superstitions and Four Peaks still have some snow on them.
