This and the ridgeline hike are my favorites in this area. I like the fact that you get two good view points since it has two saddles in the hike. The main downside of this hike is that the trail is almost entirely rocky with various size boulders.

This hike appears to be gaining in popularity also, ran across about 10 folks even though we started at 6:45am and finished about 9:15am.

Trail get difficult to follow shortly after the intersection with the Ridgline trail to the saddle. Did get a chance to see a Bighorn Sheep in prime conditions. A very windy day for hiking.

Full moon hike. Good hike, trail easy to follow. One area(N33.84603° W112.00412°) we heard three owls talking to each other. Might be worth going back to see if I can get a picture of an owl.

We decided to do another night hike since the moon was just past full. Started out on the Bursera trail, jumped onto the National, and took the Pyramid trail back to the trailhead to complete a nice 10 mile loop. Started out at about 8:30pm, and got back to the car about 1:30am. Didn't see anyone the entire hike. It was great! (but still hot~!)

Only options for hikes out of the heat is to head for higher elevations, so we decided to give this one a try. It was nice and cool in the morning. We saw a couple of Elk herds on the Rim Road. The road is quite scenic and a very reasonable dirt road, regular cars should hove no issue on this road to the trailhead.

We saw quite a few different flowers and Fungi on the hike (see photos).

The hike crosses a number of dirt roads, and sometimes follows the road. There is one area where the road is completely washed out; as in GONE (See picture), and we had to hike down the ravine and back up, but not to much of an issue. This is quite close to the Pinchot Cabin, Please note there is NO way you will be taking any kind vehicle around this gap in the road if you were planning on going to the Pinchot Cabin along this road. GPS coordinates of the washout road are: 34.509672, -111.200987

We also got to get a glimpse and a picture of a Black Bear on the way back; That was cool, first time we have ever seen a bear in the wild.

All in all a good day!

Saturday morning me and my 3 brothers started hiking about 7am. Hardly saw anyone most of the way up. Hike starts nice and gradual through pine and aspen forest. Take a 0.2 mile detour to Stella lake for a real nice view of the lake, and continue back on the main trail. Views just keep getting better and better the further you go.

Had to take a number of stops to catch the breath, but actually not as bad as I expected things to be since I live at about 1,200'. There were a number of spots on the hike that still had snow.

Some nice wildflowers on the last leg of the hike just before the final push to the top of the peak.

Probably saw about 6 folks on the way up. On the way down a couple of dozen folks making there way up. A great hike with some of the best views I can I have ever seen.

Brothers weekend get away. Met three of my brothers at the park and decided to warm up on this trail before going for Wheeler peak.

Started Friday about 5pm. Only saw about 6 people on the entire hike. This is a great short hike where you can see the Bristlecone Pines that are thousands of years old. Continuing onyou will reach the Glacier. Views were great on the whole trail, some snow still on the trail, but not to much. The trees are amazing and the glacier is very cool. if you hike to the end of the glacier hike, you will be at the base of Mount Wheeler. The end of the Wheeler Peak summit trail looks over a cliff down into this valley.

Quite a nice hike. We got a nice early start as usual, no cars at the trailhead (yeahhh). This is a loop hike and since we were starting at the top of the mountain we knew this would be a down then up hike. down, down we went. we expected the trail to start going back up about at mile 4. The trail did turn back in the right direction, but we bumped along and didn't really start going up until about mile 6, so it was a steep climb out.

It was a nice hike, but this one wore us both out. Not sure if it was because we hadn't hiked for a month or so, or it may have been the altitude, but we were glad to see the car! Although we didn't see anyone on the hike until near the end, there were a ton of cars at the trailhead when we got back at about 11am. This seems to be a popular destination at this time of year, other trailheads were not nearly as full.

On the drive in, I wouldn't drive past the gate if you don't have a 4x4. Our 4Runner struggled a little coming out in one short steep section. We ended up putting it in 4x4 low gear. Now we don't have special tires, but still I can't imaging getting out of there with anything but a 4x4. This is the last place you want to find yourself stuck. Be save and park near the gate if you don't have 4x4.

The walk in the streambead was great. Although we went in the wrong direction for just a little over 1 mile, it was great. Saw about 4 turtles in the shallow stream going up, but they were all gone by the time we came back in. The stream was running nicely, 3" - 12" deep, mostly in the 3-6" deep range. Now we did have a storm blow through last week, so water may have been better than normal. This spring has been weird, but wonderful. Nice tall trees so you are in the shade most of the time, good breeze, but since we were in the stream bead, you just would hear it blowing through the trees. Lots of birds, mostly in the trees out of sight. Not a long hike, but a great slow easy walk in the water.

Night Hike!
Full moon, so we decided to do a night hike. We did this hike the week before and decided it is a perfect candidate for a night hike. It was a bit cloudy, so we did need to use the head lamps at times, especially when in the shadows of the Superstitions.

A bit of information on the photos, because I have noticed when posting night photos that some folks don't believe they are night photos. This is how I do it.. I take along a tripod, and setup the camera for HDR. This takes three photos that are eventually combined to form one photo. The first photo is regular exposure, followed by under exposed photo and finally an over exposed photos. Combining the three together provides for a fuller dynamic range, so you can see the shadows better. The lens I used for these photos is the Rokinon 14mm f2.8, known by astronomers a a great night scenery lens. I have it set at f4 for these photos. The camera is a Canon 5D MIV. Settings on the camera is ISO 1000, 3 stops +/-2.5 with noise reduction. When I take a photo, the exposure times are generally 13", 2.5" and 30".

So why is the sky blue in the photos, but not when you look at night? I discovered as an amateur astronomer that the eye requires a threshold of light before it is able to distinguish colors. Rods are very sensitive to light, but cannot distinguish color while the Cones are not so sensitive to light and can distinguish the color. So even though the moon may be full, the sky does not look blue, and the landscape appears gray.

We did a variation on this hike shortly after the big snow this spring, and really enjoyed it. The weather was looking good for the weekend and we decided to do a quick local hike while the weather was still reasonably cool.

Really enjoy this hike, I think it may be one of our favorites. Superstitions are wonderful, weather was perfect and the palo verde trees were in full bloom. This trail is easy to follow, elevation gain is reasonable; the views are stunning.

We decided this is a perfect candidate for a night hike next full moon.

Wanted to spot the Elegant Trogon on this trip. We mapped out a loop Starting with the Old Baldy trail, then jumping onto the Agua Caliente Trail and finishing up on the Vault Mine Trail.
Madera Canyon is well known for it's birding, and hiking up the Old Baldy Trail you could hear a ton of birds everywhere including the Trogon all up and down the canyon... But we did not see the Trogon at this point.

I prefer desert hiking, but as far as higher elevation hiking with the trees and all, this is one of the better hikes I have been on. In addition to the variety of birds, views were great when available, the trail is well maintained and easy to follow, intersections are well marked.

Finally within the last 1/2 mile of our hike we were able to spot the Trogon and get some pretty good photos.

This is a great area, and I plan on coming back for more as the temperatures rise in the valley.

This is a well maintained trail that has some nice views of the red and white rocks in Sedona. It is about 1.25 miles into the hike before you get away from being able to see houses and buildings, and this trail appears quite popular. Looks like we didn't quite make it to the end of the hike, it was hard to tell, and when I got back home and checked the GPS it appears we missed the last 1/4 mile.

We decided to to a short one today, Want to take the telescope out for an imaging session :)

Arrived at trailhead at 6:45 and started up the path. smooth going, passed a tent on the way up. Views of the south and west are great. After leaving the Arizona trail there are cairns about up the 1st third of the mountain, then they fade out for the next 1/3 then they appear again for the final 1/3 of the mountain.

Views on top were great, a little snow on the side of the trail in one area, I expect that should be gone in the next couple of days. On our way down we met the guy who was camping out. He was doing the Arizona Trail and had just passed the 1/2 way mark. that's about 400 miles of the 800 mile trail. What a trooper!

A nice hike, but the road up and back makes me nervous. The 4Runner can easily handle the road, but there are steep fall-offs, and this is pretty much a one lane road for about the 2nd half of it with very few pull-offs. Lucky us, we didn't meet any on-coming traffic either way.

We wanted a short hike and heard that the wild flowers in San Tans were going so decided to check it out. As usual the desire is to avoid crowds if possible. That's a tall order for this park so close to the big city. We put together the following path:
1. Rock Peak Wash
2. San Tan - Lower East section to Stargazer
3. Stargazer
4. Moonlight Stargazer intersection to San Tan junction
5. San Tan - Lower West section to Rock Peak intersection
6. Rock Peak Wash
Total hike is 7.6 miles.

There wasn't too many people, but this park appears to have become a very popular area for mountain bikers, and the second half of the hike there was a biker about ever 10 minutes.

I think going forward we will reserve this area for weekdays, or night hikes only.
Wild flowers were OK, but it appears we may have missed the peak for this area; Although it appears the Brittle bush are getting ready to put on a show probably in the next couple of weeks.

We had done the Rogers Canyon - JF Trail Loop back in 2016, and decided we enjoyed West side (from Woodbury Trailhead) a lot more then the East 1/2 of the hike. We also decided we really didn't need to see the Indian ruins again, so we just hiked to the Angel Springs.

The hike up to the high point of the hike @ 3.64 miles was quite nice. The poppies are great this year and a there were a few hillsides pretty full of them (I'll upload the photos at a later date). There was some minor bushwacking up to this point but not too bad. There is a bit more bushwacking as you descend the valley. Once you hit the first stream bed, the trail become really overgrown and you find yourself swimming in the bushes.

Waterflow is exceptional this year, every typically dry stream bed has some water flowing at this point.

This is a great hike, but next time we do this we will probably just go to the high point and return rather than going down to the angel springs.

Forecast was for a bit warmer temperatures, so we thought we would give this one a try. Beginning of trail was great, but as we approached Workman creek, we started to run into shrubbery an other plants overgrowing the trail. we pushed through to the first Workman Creek crossing at 2.03 miles, and it was flowing quite well. Since there was only one crossing I was able to convinced the wife to continue on.

Although the trail was easy enough to follow it is apparent this trail is does not get much maintenance, or traffic. There was a lot of overgrowth for the rest of the hike, sometimes we found ourselves swimming through the bushes and occasional cat-claw like plants. Make sure to have long sleeve shirt and long pants for this hike. We finally got to the end of the hike where we again encountered Workman Creek, and it was raging quite well. We didn't try to go upstream to look for the JUG or any other features and headed back.

I'm not sure I would recommend this hike, It is mostly forest hiking, I prefer the desert where you can see things. The bushwhacking was not real fun either.

On a more positive note, we did notice some AMAZING poppies on highway 180 a bit past mile marker 220 there are a number of hillsides covered with them. If you like the wildflowers you should check this one out. I'm behind on my pictures, but I'll post one of these so you can get an idea.

We had heard the wildflowers going good in White Tanks right now so we decided to go check it out. We got a nice early start as usual to avoid crowds, and because we like early hikes anyway.

We did this hike back in 2017 one week earlier, and the Brittle bush were in full bloom. This made for a great sight of the mountains when coming out of the Ford Canyon hike, whole mountainsides turned yellow. It appears this year we were a bit early, probably got another month before they bloom. there were other wild flowers, but not as many as I had hoped. It appears the West side of the valley has not received nearly as much as the east side; Superstitions are completely green, not so much with White tanks. There was a small trickle in the Ford Canyon drainage in some areas, but for the most part the drainage is dry.

Still a nice hike, and we did this in a clockwise motion going from the Mesquite trail to the Ford trail; I think that was a good move since I expected more crowds later in the day in the Mesquite trail. Given that it was a weekend, we actually didn't run into too many folks till the end of the hike.

It's peak hiking season, and I'm getting behind on the photos, I'll have to post this set later.
