Location visible to members


This trip is for anyone under age 35 that is reasonably fit and wants to see the beauty of the Western Superstions.

We'll start at the First Water trailhead and hike in on the Dutchman trail. We'll get awesome views of Weavers Needle and Garden Valley as we head towards Charlibois Spring (reliable waater) where we'lll camp for the evening. We'll enjoy cocktails around the campfire Saturday evening.

On Sunday morning, we'll backtrack on the Dutchman but will veer off onto the Boulder Canyon and Second Water trails to complete the loop. There's a pretty good stretch of boulder-hopping in the section.

The trip is 16 total miles and approximately 2,000' of elevation gain.

This is a great time of year to hike in the Supes and the weather should be very nice and the temperatures comfortable.

Here's a write-up of the loop, not including the section to and from Charlibois:
