Day Hiking in the Superstitions

Could you recommend a couple of moderate day hikes in the superstition mountains. We will be staying in Scotsdale.

Peralta Trail as as far as Fremont Saddle, moderate. Won't take a day, but you can always venture on a bit from the saddle towards Weaver's Needle. This is a trail where you can't get lost. The scenery is overwhelming.

Very easy and pretty short: hieroglyphic canyon trail.

A bit more strenuous, but terrific, out of Lost Dutchman SP: Siphon Draw. If you go there, take a look at Goldfield across the road!

Not in the Superstitions, but close and with great views - Pass Mountain or Wind Cave trails in Usery Mountain Regional Park.

We are headed out to Hieroglyphic trail this afternoon!

You posted in the Sedona forum. You might want to repost in the Scottsdale or Phoenix forum.

Had a nice hike this afternoon. Waterfall was running at the hieroglyphics.
