Beloved by locals and admired by adventurers nationwide, the Superstition Mountains offer pristine desert landscapes, invigorating hiking, and limitless tranquility. On this overnight backpacking trip, we'll explore the desolate wilderness that makes up this spectacular mountain range. The first day, we'll get fully set up with all the backpacking gear you'll need, then hike our way into our secluded campsite. We'll make camp for the night, enjoy a hearty meal, and relax under the desert canopy of stars. We'll wake up with the sun with some coffee and breakfast, then continue on our journey. Perfect for those with a bit of prior hiking experience, you'll need to be comfortable walking up to 10 miles on uneven terrain while carrying a 35lb pack. All meals and backpacking gear is provided. We love this region, and are pretty sure you will too!
