Bluff Springs Loop Trail

One day in early 2014, with only limited time, my wife and friends and I decided to hike only the start of the Bluff Springs Loop Trail which is accessed via the Peralta Trailhead at the south end of the Superstition Mountains southeast of Gold Canyon, Arizona. I was so taken with the trail that I decided a week or so later that I had to hike the whole trail and it was a great decision. The trail is a moderately difficult nine mile hike but it is a mix of flat, steep and variable terrain, all beautiful. I'm sure I'll do it again. This gallery is a project in progress.
