Trail Overview

A relatively flat, bumpy trail leads to the First Water Trailhead and access to the beautiful Superstition Wilderness. Four-wheel drive is not required, however, several washes exist on the trail that are prone to drastic flash flooding. Please monitor weather patterns before use. There is no overnight parking at this location, however, primitive restrooms are available. Pack out what you pack in.
