First Water to Canyon Lake

SECOND WATER to CANYON LAKE MARINA Day Hike - Superstitions Sat, Dec. 7

 

Leader: Stan Backenstoss ([masked])      Length: 7.6 Miles


Phone:[masked]                   Rating: Moderate


MEET in south end of Home Depot parking lot, US 60 & Power Rd, 8:00 AM

 

This hike requires a shuttle. Because of this, please - no 'be-backers' - You will want to block out all day for the hike and shuttle(s).

We will leave some vehicles at the Canyon Lake Marina TH, then return to the lower horse staging lot at First Water TH. We begin by visiting an old corral and ramada along First  Water Creek. Following the First Water creek-bed we come upon Hackberry Spring. Ascending to Garden Valley we pick up Second Water trail (236) . Here in Garden Valley we can search an ancient Indian ruin for pot shards and grinding holes. Continuing on Second Water trail we pick up the Boulder Canyon Trail (103).

A break will be taken at the Indian Paint Mine before heading up the trail for an outstanding vista of Canyon Lake and return to our vehicles.

For those interested we will stop after the hike at the Hitching Post in AJ for some refreshment. See note above about CA$H.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
