Anybody up for a challenging Superstition Ridgeline day hike?
This is one of Arizona's great kick butt day hikes. The beauty and scenic views on this hike are hard to beat. the view of the Superstions from up high are breathtaking! The hike is 11.5 miles and 4,480' of elevation gain/loss! With the shorter days, we'll push hard and move fast on this one.
After dropping a vehicle at the exit trailhead, we'll head up the steep Siphon Draw trail and climb 2,080' in 2.5 miles up to the Flatiron. We'll continue past Superstition Peak and then tackle the ups and downs of the Ridgeline as we travel east. At the end, we'll drop down steeply using the Carney Springs trail.
If you're up for the challenge and you consider yourself a very fit hiker, come join us!
