  • -It is nice hiking, and if you want to push yourself you can pick a harder trail. Nice view from the top of trail, you can see the Lost Dutchman ghost town. 
  • Great place to experience Superstition Mountains and surrounding desert. Trails of varying length and difficulty make it a good family choice. Rock formations are fantastic. 
  • If you can't camp, just ask the Ranger for a drive through and check out the awesome views from ALL of the great camp sites. 
  • Just a short drive from the hustle and chaos of the Phoenix metro area you get a chance to see the Sonoran Desert in all its glory. Great day trip for locals and tourist alike. Wide array of hiking trails throughout the park and amazing place to take some photos and enjoy the flavor of the Southwest.
  • BEST HIKE, small drive from the phoenix area! We did the Siphon draw trail to the top! It makes Camelbacks echo canyon feel like a training day. You want a hard hike go to the top here! It goes without saying, beautiful location and hike. The higher you get on the hike, the views of the mountian and the city get more and more spectacular! Well maintained trail to the Basin location! Clean nice bathrooms. PLEASE bring Lots of water! We rescued a couple that didn't have enough water and got lost. We gave them water and helped them down. Past the basin you can get lost so looked for white paint with blue dots on the way up. A lot of it has faded. If u don't hike alot I don't recommend doing the whole trail. It took the couple we helped 10 hours to do this hike! We were on pace to do it in 3.45 Hours with a rest at the top but we hike/MTB alot and are in great shape. Once we helped the couple down we ended up finishing in 5 hours. I would say 5 hours is a good pace for most hikers. Lots of hands and knees climbing. It's steap!! But the payoff it worth it! Be safe and have a blast!
  • Great vibe. Very clean and helpful staff. Pleasant surprise.
  • Great place to hike. A lil difficult but great workout.
  • The Treasure Loop Trail is very easy for does parents that like to hike with their children just like i do.. It is a breathtaking view. Did i mention THE RESTROOMS ARE KEPT REALLY CLEAN!! 👍👌 .. THAT SAYS ALOT ABOUT A PARK.
