Geronimo's Cave ( Reverse). Superstition mountains.
NOTE: This hike is intended for us hardcore desert rat type hikers. We will be in the sun for about 90% of the hike. If you are not used to strenuous outdoor activity in this climate. or are not in good physical condition you may want to wait for this one until cooler weather. This is a nice little loop hike to Geronimo's Cave and return via Peralta trail. This will be a rather strenuous hike (climb) at first. Once we are at the cave it is easy street from there. This hike is approximately 5 miles and should take from 3 to 5 hrs depending on the makeup of the group. The views of course are spectacular! We need to be on the trail by 0530 am. I am hoping to have this hike completed before the temperature reaches 90 Bring. 3 to 4 liters of water, Snacks as desired, Sun Protection and of course your camera. We can carpool and meet at the Peralta trails Elementary school at the first parking lot you come to on the west side of the school. To leave by 0500 am. Or you can proceed straight to the trailhead. Please post in the comments section if you desire to carpool. DIFFICULTY: The hard side of moderate due to the sun exposure.

What we're about

The Hiking Hikers Hiking Group (“3H”) is an outdoor activities group, that seeks, through its members and member volunteers, to provide a supportive, nurturing environment for people to enjoy and explore the outdoors; increase awareness of and protect beautiful wild places; and promote physical conditioning and encourage personal growth.

The 3H encourages its members, comprised of singles, committed couples and married couples from the early twenties to the late sixties and beyond, to be well-prepared for each event attended by taking personal responsibility for their own safety and educating themselves on the skills and knowledge needed to be safe in the many places near and far that this group visits.

Education, common sense, respect for others and the willingness to help, by all of us, provides a fun, safe, and positive experience for everyone.
