The Fish Creek Loop starts with a hike down scenic Rogers Canyon, then loops through a remote, trailless canyon system and along a scenic ridge with views of much of the Superstition Mountains. Forest Road 172, the access road, crosses Hewitt Canyon several times, and may be impassable during or after a major storm. The last 0.4 mile of the road requires a high-clearance vehicle. Maximum group size 15 persons and maximum stay limit of 14 days.
