We love to day hike and found a wonderland in the Superstition Mountains and Tonto National Forest. Thus far we have hiked 8 trails and expect to hike at least 5 more before our departure. We highly recommend The Wave Cave and Peralta Point

I did this trail with the North Mountain Hiking Club. A very scenic hike I’d never done before. Definitely worth the drive out; lots to take pictures of. Bring lots of water and snacks, take time to enjoy and take it all in.

My Phoenix-area hiking club decided to go up. It was the same hike/climb my buddy and I did four years ago, but slightly less gung ho. We didn't get lost this time either. It's a slog - no two ways about it - but if...More
