Western Superstition Backpack - First Water to Charlebois Spring


This is a great time to visit the Supes and would be a good beginners backpack for fit, experienced hikers.

We will meet at Lowe's at 7:30 am Saturday then carpool to the First Water Trailhead.

We will take the Dutchman's Trail (#104) about 8 1/2 miles with a 2,600' elevation gain to Charlebois Spring.  We will camp for the night near a lush riparian area.  We should have plenty of water in the spring and don't forget your beverages for around the campfire.

Temps could get to the 20's at night, water from spring will need to be treated.

Sunday, after breakfast, we will start out on the Dutchman's Trail, then Bull Pass (#129) to Black Mesa (#241), then Second Water (#236) to First Water TH - about 8 1/2 miles.

Not a dog friendly backpack - sorry no dogs.
