'Not going' RSVP's are unnecessary


Saturday, February 16th
Leader: Phil Newell ([masked])

Length: 7.2 miles
Phone:[masked] Rating: Moderate
MEET in the SOUTH end of the Home Depot parking lot (Power Rd & Superstition Springs),


Elev Change: 710 ft

This is a really nice day hike in the Superstitions. We start by taking the Dutchman Trail from the trailhead and then we will follow a loop
from the Dutchman Trail, through the First Water Creek bed, out into the wide West Boulder Canyon, down into O'Grady Canyon, and then
back on the Dutchman. We will be following the creek bed off-trail for much of the hike, so depending on the amount of rain we have had, we may
get wet feet! If the creek has flowing water, we should see nice waterfalls. We may need to take a diversion here and there if there is a lot of
water and that means Cat Claw, so long pants may be helpful.

Rated at Moderate as we may be off trail to avoid water as necessary - otherwise it is easy to moderate.

After the hike we will stop for replentishment in Apache Junction. (optional)
