Dutchmans Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This popular loop through the western Superstitions takes in a lot of interesting country, following well-graded, easy trails. The hike is a good one for newcomers to the sport of backpacking. Hike east on the Dutchmans Trail over a low ridge. The trail loops around the base of Miners Needle, climbing to Miners Summit via a couple of switchbacks. It then descends northwest to Crystal Spring at the base of Bluff Springs Mountain. Turning northeast, the good trail descends Bluff Spring Canyon, passing the spur trail to Bluff Spring, and then turns more to the north and works its way down to La Barge Canyon and the junction with the Red Tanks Trail."
