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.
