Tortilla Pass–Red Tanks Divide Hike

Tortilla Pass–Red Tanks Divide Hike Professional Review and Guide

"This hike is a classic backpack trip through remote and less-visited canyons in the central Superstition Mountains, including Fraser, Randolph, and Red Tanks Canyons.

It includes a traverse of the high ridge between Fish Creek and upper Tortilla Creek, views of much of the Superstition Mountains, and a walk past the historic JF Ranch, a working cattle ranch on the southern edge of the Superstition Wilderness."

"A backpacking loop through some remote and little-visited canyons that traverses the central Superstition Wilderness; the first section is along the scenic JF Trail.

This road requires a four-wheel-drive, high-clearance vehicle—otherwise, you can hike this section, which adds 5.2 round-trip miles to the hike. You can also start this loop from the Woodbury Trailhead."
