Superstitions: Peralta Trail

az

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 5.2 miles


We hiked down Peralta Trail from our camp site in Boulder Basin.

From our camp in Boulder Basin, we followed Dutchmans Trail to Peralta Trail. Peralta Trail climbs up and over a ridge southeast of Palamino Mountain, providing fantastic views of Weavers Needle, Black Top Mesa, and the surrounding terrain on either side of the ridge. It’s a long climb, but not too steep. As with most of the trails in this area, the trail is rocky. At one point early in the climb, the route takes a sharp right out of a brushy wash and ascends a section of solid rock marked only by cairns, but otherwise the trail is very easy to follow. After climbing up to a point where the trail seemed to be leveling off, we picked a spot with a fantastic view of Weavers Needle, had lunch, then returned by the same route back to camp.
