Description

The trail begins at the junction with the Second Water Trail #236 and climbs onto the top of a mesa. The trail is quite rocky on the ascent, clear along the top of the mesa, and rocky on the descent on the other side. There are great views of the Superstition Mountains as well as Weavers Needle. The trail crosses a (seasonal?) creek before meeting the Dutchman Trail #104.

This creek crossing is often shallow, but come the rain it can be a site of flooding.
