This hike will do a 360 loop around Weaver’s Needle. It is one of
the signature sights in the Superstitions Mountains. Bring your camera,
because on this hike you can get up close and personal with Weaver’s
Needle. There will be plenty of different sights on this trail.
We will have lunch at the head waters of Boulder Creek, which may have water in it. Boulder Creek runs all the way to Canyon Lake on the other side of the Superstitions. We’ll do this hike in a counter-clockwise direction around Weaver’s. There are many possible side trails, but they are away from the Needle. At each major trail junction, make a left turn. There is one side trail that goes to the base of the Needle that the climbers use. We will hike this trail counter-clockwise.
We may get some shade on the Peralta as we return from the Superstitions. Weaver’s will be in the sun at all times. See Map.
You will need:
• at least 3 liters of water
• good hiking boots
• snacks and camera
• smiling faces and ready to climb!
