The Superstition Mountains were made for spring, when its springs and creeks awaken and its wildflowers riot against a backdrop of tortured red cliffs.... Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:
We’ll meet to consolidate our carpool at the Shea/SR-51 (Dreamy Draw) Park-and-Ride at 10418 N 33rd St at 7:00am (SHARP!) on Friday morning. Sorry, we will not be able to meet hikers at the trailhead.
It was kind of surprising how empty the trails were on such a lovely weekend. We were just 50 miles outside of a big city, but apart from a few other intrepid backpackers, we had the trails (and swimming holes!) all to ourselves. The weather was perfect, the wildflowers were blooming, the songbirds were singing, the creeks were flowing, and the trails were clear. Our timing couldn't have been better, and we enjoyed tranquil, cool nights under the stars and a waning moon.
