Hand Carved by Mother Nature – Siphon Draw Hike
The drive to the Superstitions is well worth the gorgeous views and unique variety of terrain.

Mother Nature has been hand crafting this hike for millennia. Its gorgeous views and humbling stature are sure to inspire you. The Superstition Draw Trail, a rugged trail lined by thick brush, leads hikers to an area of slick rock know as The Basin. The Basin marks the end of the maintained trail and marks the entry to a rock scramble and bouldering adventure to the ever present and awe inspiring Flatiron. If you happen to hike Siphon Draw after a recent rainstorm, you will likely see waterfalls running through the basin. This hike is well shaded during the early morning hours. Most hikers highly suggest wearing hiking shoes with good grip (especially after a recent rainstorm). There is a park entrance fee (typically less than $10 per vehicle).
