Just east of the greater Phoenix area rise the Superstitions - a wild, rugged range of volcanic peaks, mesas, and canyons. North of the Superstitions and still only a two-hour drive from Phoenix, the Mazatzal Mountains, one of Arizona's largest wilderness areas, offer the hiker solitude and beautiful scenery. This guidebook includes details on over 50 hikes ranging from a few hours to a week in length for any hiker to explore this wild country.
