the hike     Peralta Trail to Fremont Saddle to Geronimo Cave to Bluff Springs.
    This is a rugged and beautiful loop hike in the southwest Superstition Mountains.
    Start at Peralta Trailhead and hike entirely on trail to Fremont Saddle, 2.3 miles and 1,341 ft above the trailhead. At the saddle, enjoy spectacular views, including Weaver’s Needle.
    The next portion of the hike is an off trail descent, sometimes steep, over slickrock and boulders, down the Cave route. Route finding is by cairns and AllTrails app and can be challenging. Eventually we come to the large and interesting Geronimo Cave. The Cave route then connects to the Bluff Springs Trail back to the Peralta parking lot.
