Needle Canyon Hike Professional Review and Guide
"This day hike loops around all sides of the most famous Superstition Wilderness landmark, Weavers Needle. The trail through Needle Canyon takes you beneath the towering cliffs of the east face of Weavers Needle. Upper East Boulder Canyon, Fremont Pass, and Peralta Canyon have the finest display of volcanic rhyolite towers in the Superstition Mountains. From the trailhead, start out on the Bluff Spring Trail and follow the well-graded trail across Barks Canyon. The trail climbs 1.4 miles north up a tributary of Barks Canyon to meet the Terrapin Trail; turn left here. A gradual climb to the northwest leads to Bluff Saddle. The triple summits of Weavers Needle dominate the view to the northwest, and the cliffs of Bluff Spring Mountain tower above you on the east."
