Expedition to the Superstition!
Another great trail in central Arizona! Depart 9:00am from the Texaco in Florence Junction (junction of highways 60 and 79), east of Mesa. Please confirm your attendence with me, especially Matt (if you are bringing the Hibachi again for us to share!) ; )
This is a moderate-difficulty trail that climbs from the desert foothills near the Boyce Thompson Arboretum into the Superstition Mountains. Work your way up a rocky streambed (hopefully there will be a trickle of water left), climb to scrub oak and juniper pinion vegetation, and work your way west along some ridges toward Rogers Trough, and then down into scenic rocky country the Superstition Mountains are so known. This trail packs a lot of different scenery into one day, and is suitable for all vehicles and talents.
