This is an amazing hike through the Supps. Although I will never hike although the way through LaBarge Canyon again. The South end is pretty rough going. Slowed us way down and wore us out.

Backpacked Boulder Canyon from Canyon Lake to Black Top Mesa with Victoria and some friends (party of 5 altogether) as the 1st day of a 3 day backpacking trip.

The plan was to Hike along Boulder Canyon in search of reliable water sources somewhere in the vicinity of Black Top Mesa. We would camp wherever water availability would allow (preferably between 5 and 8 miles in) and use this spot as our basecamp for the remainder of the trip.

We all met up at the parking lot (no Tonto pass needed for boulder canyon parking) and went through the usual exercise of distributing the weight of shared gear and discarding items that were not absolutely necessary once people realized exactly how heavy their bags were.

Once everyone was set up we began the initial ascent. This was a bit tough as our bags were pretty heavy with extra water (as contingency against all the springs being dry) and the food for 3 days. The views of Canyon lake and Boulder canyon ahead from the top/ridgeline were pretty cool though.

Beginning the descent into boulder canyon we came across some old foundations (and a metal bed frame) of what was probably a miners' cabin of some sort which we spent some time exploring. Further down we encountered our first water source at Boulder Creek which had some algae contaminated pools with some flow that were large enough for filtering. This was a big relief as I have a history of failed Superstitions backpacking trips where we hike in, find no water, and then have to hike out the same day (with all the unused gear and food having become pointless dead weight). So the trip was already off to a good start.

At around this point we found ourselves leap-frogging with another group of backpackers which one getting ahead when the other took a break and vice versa. The trails were relatively crowded (for the Superstitions) and we saw no fewer than 8 different groups backpacking throughout the entire trip. There was still plenty of room and we didn't have any neighbors at the sites we selected for camping.

The weather also held together for us. The forecast for this day had variable % of rain in the 25 to 30 % range but we managed to complete our entire hike, get to the desired campsite, and pitch our tents before having any significant precipitation.

Navigation and route-finding were also pretty straightforward. The trails were generally clear. where we had to cross the creek bed there were usually multiple cairns making it apparent where to go. There were quite a few trail junctions though. they all had signs and we only once briefly made a wrong turn which we were able to quickly correct with the gps app.

Of the my preferred camping locations the first (Boulder Creek) was dry, the 2nd (Needle Canyon) had water but not much space, the 3rd East Boulder-Weavers Viewpoint was perfect. It had pools with some flow, flat spots with room for multiple 2p tents, a fire pit (which we improved upon), and a excellent view of Weavers Needle.

We pitched our tents, cooked up some tacos for dinner and planned our next day's adventure. The weather cut our festivities a bit short by starting a rather serious downpour after dinner. We retreated to our tents and called it a night at that point.

Key exchange led with Fred. Perfect weekend for backpacking in the Supes. There was water everywhere. Night-time temps were perfect. Had a few newbies to the club and they were great. Camped at Charlebois. Water level was much lower than i expected with all of the winter rains and the water everywhere else. Still plenty there tho. The old stump that we usually hang from has finally given up it's hold in the earth and will dump an unsuspecting hammocker on their butt. :(

Wonderful long hike with great Supes scenery. Started at the Peralta trailhead at o'dark thirty and finished the hike just as dark was setting in. The route began by taking the Peralta trail up and over Fremont saddle to its end at the Dutchman trail intersection. Proceeded on the Dutchman a ways then took the Boulder Canyon trail all the way to Canyon Lake where I refilled my water at the marina. Temps were below freezing most of the way to Canyon Lake. Very windy on the approach to the lake. On the return trip I took Preston's route on the Boulder Canyon trail to the Calvary trail to the Dutchman to Bluff Springs trail and back to the Peralta trailhead. Stopped at few attractions along the way and took lots of pics. Refilled my water at LaBarge spring. Lots of fall colors still along LaBarge creek. The willows and cottonwoods were brightly colored, accented by the red/brown dying leaves of the sycamores. Beautiful day for a hike.

We Started the day by droping off my girlfriend's car off at the Canyon Lake marina on Thursday March 17, 2011 around 0745. We drove around and started our hike from Peralta Trailhead atound 0915. The description posted on this site describes the hike from north to south but I thought it would be easier south to north.

From Peralta trailhead we took Bluff Springs trail to Terrapin trail. Terrapin trail took us to Dutchman's trail. From Dutchman's trail we hiked through Marsh valley to Calvalry trail. Calvalry trail took us to Boulder canyon trail which lead us back to the car at Canyon lake. All in all it was 16 miles hiked over 2 days.

We camped just east of where Terrapin and Dutchman's trail meet. It was quiet, green, and secluded; a perfect spot to spend the night. This was about 5 to 5 1/4 miles from the trail head.

The second day we woke up and felt pretty good after having breakfast. We packed up our camp and set out to camp a second night in the area where Calvalry trail and Boulder Canyon trail meet; leaving us about 5 miles to hike out on the 3rd day.

We made pretty good time to Boulder canyon trail so we decided to hike the last portion that second day. It was a tough climb up that last hill but we were able to do it.

Overall it was a great experience and my girlfriend is willing to try another backpacking trip. On a side note. Water was limited but we were able to refill our bottles at a few locations. The best location to fill up was definately Marsh Valley.

Pictures to come soon and GPS log to be posted soon.

Fantastic weekend to be out in the Supes!! We got to experience everything but the hot, hot, heat of summer. The snow was WONDERFUL!

Did this trip as a key exchange with ABC. One group left from Canyon Lake TH, and the other from Peralta. We camped at Charlebois. Saturday hiking was perfect weather. Overcast, but super comfortable with great views of Weaver's Needle and plenty of time to take in the sights. We got to camp around 2:00 and set up our shelters thinking that we had limited time before the storms rolled in. We shouldn't have felt so rushed. There was plenty of time to set up, wander around a bit, relax in the hammock, filter water, cook dinner, and hang out around the fire. It didn't start raining 'til around 10:30 and by then we were all snuggled up in our hammocks and tents. I woke up around 12:00 feeling like my tarp was trying to suffocate me. It was just the 2 inches of snow accumulated on top of it, so a quick shake and all was well again. After that, I woke up a couple more times to get rid of the snow on the tarp. I turned the headlamp on to check out the total accumulation at around 3am... looked pretty close to 4 inches to me. Then it started to rain again and it all melted down to what we had left in the morning, which was still quite lovely. My camera battery died just as we left camp :( So I didn't get to take any pics on the way out. The hike out was pretty fun. The trail was still easy to follow, though a bit soggy. We got sleeted/hailed on a couple of times and then had about 30 minutes of snow on the Bluff Springs Trail. Only took us about 3 hours to go from Charlebois to Peralta. I guess we didn't want to stop and smell the non-existent roses ;)

Such a fun trip! I'm so glad we didn't cancel it :y: But I am still experiencing pain due to no-functioning-camera-during-rare-snow-event-itis. Sigh. Guess I will just have to look at everyone else's pics :D

We hiked a variation of this in reverse starting at Peralta and storming Cardiac Hill and then following Bluff springs to the terrible Terrapin trail. Its much nicer in this direction. Going the opposite way on our needle loop I thought my timepiece was gonna stop. After a brief walk on the Dutchman we strolled along the Cavalry trail to Boulder canyon trail and on to the Marina where our shuttle awaited us. We saw a few things and some people during our travels and thoroughly enjoyed our first through hike in the supes.

I've been wanted to do this hike for a little while and rally_toad agreed to go with me. Grace took me the night before to drop my car off at Canyon Lake. Thanks Grace! :D It's sure nice not to have to do it in the morning. We hit the Bluff Spring trail around 7:30 and the jackets were off by 8:00. Nothing like a good climb to warm you up. There was pools of water here and there with a thin layer of ice. Alex showed me the Big Saguaro.We found the Master map(I think)(thanks Wally). Went by Charlebois Spring for the first time and enjoyed our lunch at waterside. Did the whole Calvary trail for the first time. Alex's first trip by the Indian Paint mine. What a lot to see in one hike. Great views,Great weather and a great hike!
Thanks Alex! :D

Denny asked me if I was up for a Peralta to Canyon Lake shuttle this Friday, and indeed I was. Especially after bailing on the Tule to Peralta hike, I still wanted to get a longer hike in this long weekend. We did the hike exactly as described in the description, except started from Peralta and ended at Canyon Lake. The elevation gain is a rough estimate. Great hike today. Got to see the master map, Charlebois spring, and knock out some short segments of trail that I hadn't done yet (Charlebois to White Rock, Second Water Junction to La Barge creek).

Took almost exactly 8 hours inclusive of breaks and lunch. Great day in the supes.

Officially achieved 600 miles on the year, my goal for 2010. I had been stuck at 596 since my trip to the Everglades for Veterans day for various reasons. Glad to get 600 under my belt.

Took wknd out/back backpack on this route. I went as far as the first
campgroud described in the writeup, about 2 mi on Cavalry. The stream was
near knee deep so there was alot of wading which felt good given the 70temps.
The area was green and lush. Alot of hikers of all sorts. Shared some
cairn finding at the crossings with a backpacking couple.

We dropped our car off at Canyon Lake on New Year's Eve and did the hike (on 3 hours of sleep :o ) on New Year's morning. Great day to hike in the Superstitions; we mostly enjoyed the trails to ourselves for 16 miles. The trails were, for the most part, very well marked but there were a few places on the Boulder Canyon trail in which we pretty much relied solely on the cairns to get us through river beds.

The highlights of this hike include great views of Weaver's Needle from many angles, amazing views of steep canyons, a few views from the east of Flatiron (if you're looking for it), remains of an old mine site (completely closed and safe), and a great view of Canyon Lake as you descend to the parking lot on your last leg (assuming that you start from Peralta. Starting at Peralta would definitely be our recommendation, because you get most of the elevation out of the way and enjoy a gradual drop for much of the hike until nearing Canyon Lake when there is a bit more elevation change.

Great shuttle hike.

Started at Peralta. This is a great hike for viewing the heart of the Superstitions. Great views of the Ridgeline, Weaver's Needle, Battleship Mtn. I could do without the section from Dutchman to 2nd water. The rock hopping and creek bed crossing is a little tedious. All in all a great hike. Our key swap group saw bighorns on the way out. Very lucky, nice pics Kevin. What is the AEG for Peralta to Canyon Lake?

Nice cool day, windy on the Lake side! Once again, the mileage is an estimate. Hiked from the TH to a little past the second creek crossing, not quite to Second Water junction. I surprised a ringtail up a tree at one of the campsites, and it quckly climbed down the other side of the trunk and vanished into the brush. Saw a few cardinals as well, plenty of cactus wrens. Back at the Lake, there was a guy actually swimming in that little Boulder Creek estuary. Brr!

I have done this hike now 4 times and have always started out at the Peralta TH. I like to finish at the Canyon Lake TH because after a long hike there is nothing like a cold beer waiting for you at the marina.

Avoid doing this hike in summer since the canyon gets very hot and there is no shade along the way. You will also encounter about 25 creek crossings which gets a little tiresome after awhile, but the creek is normally dry. However, I have found that the best time to do this hike is in the spring when there is often water running in the creek.

We were going to do Reavis Gap Trail on this weekend, but there was talk of snow at 3500 feet, so plans changed. The cold rain storm that settled in on day 2 confined us to our tents for most of the day. I nearly went mad from cabin fever (tent fever?) :twisted:
We sat around outside that night, and I told creepy Superstition stories: Adolph Ruth, Walter Gassler's death site stalker, Ed Piper's encounter with the supernatural, etc. I scared myself, too.

Don't underestimate the time it takes to drop a car at Canyon Lake and shuttle to the Peralta trailhead, or the time to bushwhack, rockscramble and cairn-spot your way through the southern half of the Boulder Canyon trail. It was after eight when my intrepid party of three left the trailhead, and we finished the last 2 to 2-1/2 miles in the dark.

Probably the best part of the trail for me was between Fremont Saddle and the Dutchman-Boulder Canyon junction. There's a lot of interesting geology and it must be awesome in spring, judging from the amount of globe mallow and other spring-flowering plants I saw. The Peralta trail passes through an area that was hit by fire long enough ago that the burnt skeletons of plants have healthy green growth shooting out of their bases.

We lost light south of the Boulder Canyon-Second Water junction, just as we gained the first saddle where you can see the Lake. Managing the rest of the twisty trail with nothing but two headlamps was an adventure I don't want to repeat. The three of us decided to come back to Canyon Lake some other time, just so we can actually see the last few miles we hiked!

Went from canyon lake to peralta as a shuttle hike this weekend with some friends. Took boulder canyon to calvary to the dutchman all the way in to Peralta. Great way to cut through the interior of the western supes. Camped at Charlebois spring. Could not believe how good of condition the spring was in. Did not see the petroglyphs.
