What a beautiful hike. It's not easy, unless straight up with holders is easy, but the views!!!! Make it all the way to the top, so you can see weaver's needle. It's absolutely worth the effort. And take water and sunscreen. I know it goes without saying, but if you're like me and you don't live in the desert, you'll be shocked at how much water you need.

This 2.25 mile trail rises about 1200 foot to a Saddle with a view North, and South to the Horizons that are miles away. Access to the trail is via Peralta Rd. a mostly dirt road just East of Gold Canyon, Az. Trailhead has restrooms and lots of parking spots. You get an awesome view of Weavers Needle from the saddle. Trail up to the saddle winds back and forth across the tree lined creek that often has open water holes or a small flow. Large rocks and big steps so have proper hiking footwear and bring your water and a lunch to eat at the saddle while you enjoy the view.
