Let's hike Bluff Springs Loop from the end of Peralta Rd in the Superstitions in Gold Canyon. This hike is 8.9 miles and cumulatively probably 1500 ft vertical. Starts off with a good climb that will get your heart rate up. If looking at a Trail Map, you will see this as Bluff Springs Trail to Dutchman's Trail #104. We'll hike around "Miner's Needle." Hike leaves from Peralta Trailhead at the end of Peralta Rd on Gold Canyon at 9:50 AM. Or meet at Bashas 5310 S Superstition Mountain Dr, Gold Canyon, AZ 85218 at 9:20 AM. to carpool in from there. Count on 3 hours, 55 minutes for the hike. This would be considered a moderate hike. Please have done some moderate hikes before. I keep about 23 minutes per mile pace, even on hikes like this with some vertical gain.
