With spectacular cliffs framing a narrow slot canyon, Fish Creek sports some of the most eye-popping scenery in the Superstitions. However, the price you pay to explore this wonderful landscape is tough scrambling along a tricky creek bed with no trails or route markers.

Easy hike. Great views of Southeast valley. Plenty of other trails to explore from the trailhead.

Awesome petroglyphs. Lots of families on the trail. Great for kids and dogs. Trail was well marked. A little tough on the way up

Nice easy hike. Trail was a little rocky, not a dirt path which made us look down most of the way. The trail guide directions to the trail head were accurate however the cattle guard has been paved over. Petroglyphs were neat and we really enjoyed the hike. Took the whole family kids, 6, 8, 10 and dog and we all had a good time.
