Description: Starting at First Water trailhead in the superstitions, we'll head east along the Dutchman's trail until we hit boulder canyon. From there, we'll head north (hopefully there'll be some water in the river), and finally head back west to first water trailhead via the second water trail. This will be a fairly long hike with some sandy areas along boulder canyon. The hills are generally gentle ones, with a steeper climb out of boulder canyon, and descent back into first water trailhead along the second water trail. An online trail description may be found here.
