MEET in Home Depot’s Parking Lot, Power Rd & Superstition Springs, 7:00 am Elev Change: + 1,550 ft

We will be hiking to the summit of Aztec Peak which is the highest peak in the Sierra Ancha wilderness at 7,748 feet. Along the way, we will see the Workman Creek Falls - let's hope there is water, and we will also the Peterson Ranch which is home to an apple orchard (will sadly not be in-season).
Once we ascend to the peak, there is a lookout tower and we will be blessed with a 360 degree view. Amazing!
Immediately following the hike we will have a BBQ at/near the trailhead. Please bring something to burn, your favorite beverage and a chair!!
Some will be car-camping near Aztec after the hike to escape the Valley's oppressive heat – if you want, bring your camping gear!
