This easy loop from the Peralta Trailhead offers classic views of Weavers Needle in the western Superstition Mountains. The loop uses the Peralta Trail, a short section of crosscountry, and the Bluff Spring Trail to circle through some of the most dramatic scenery in the Superstition Mountains. Hike clockwise because it’s easier to find the return trail. Start the hike on the Peralta Trail, which climbs 1.8 miles up Peralta Canyon to Fremont Saddle.
