This is undoubtedly one of the top hikes in this area. It is a classic!
This hike covers the ridgeline between Superstition Peak and Flat Iron. We will start at the Carney Springs Trailhead hike up to Superstition Peak via West Boulder Saddle and then the ridgeline to Flat Iron and down Siphon Draw to Lost Dutchmen State Park. It will be about 13 miles and 5,000' of elevation gain. It is an extremely difficult hike and because of the necessity for a car shuttle, will be limited to a set number of people. I will entertain having 2 or 3 more very fit people if possible. Depending on the number of people we will need 3 to 4 vehicles. The more people the vehicle will hold, the easier the car shuttle situation.
We will meet in the parking lot next to the bank near Trader Joes and carpool from there. We will drop off most of the hikers at Carney Springs Trailhead and take all the vehicles up to Lost Dutchmen State Park. One vehicle will then bring all the drivers back to Carney Springs Trailhead to begin the hike.
This hike will feature bushwhacking, scrambling, and route-finding!
If it is warm out it is even more difficult. Bring lots of water!
Bring energy food and more water (4 liters recommended, more if it's hot).
If inclement weather is a possibility, this hike will be cancelled.
Hike at your own risk.
