This backpack trip has it all—scenic canyons, views from high ridges, seasonal creeks, and a well-preserved pre-Columbian ruin. Upper Rogers Canyon is one of the gems of the Superstition Wilderness, and Angel Basin is a surprising open valley in a country of deep canyons and rugged peaks. The route also crosses one of the highest passes in the Superstition Mountains, providing views of much of the range.
