Description

Superstition Mountain is located immediately east of the Phoenix metropolitan area in Arizona and rises to the height of 3,000 feet above the surrounding desert floor. It anchors the west end of the Superstition Wilderness. The mountain is a prominent landmark in the eastern Valley of the Sun and is a popular recreation destination in the region.

Superstition Mountain is a popular three season (fall, winter, spring) hiking area. Afternoon temperatures from June to September are usually in the range of 100 to 115°F near the mountain. Day hikers often frequent the mountain during cooler months. The Lost Dutchman State Park is located on the western side of the mountain and includes hiking trails to notable formations such as the Praying Hands and the Flatiron. The Peralta Trail, on the southern side of the mountain, traverses Fremont Saddle and descends into the wilderness to the east of the mountain.
