Flat Out Beautiful  Sucess!

Wonderfully scenic and diverse hike that kicked my butt thoroughly, doing this after a 6 AM flight from Chicago. Perfect weather: 60 degrees and clear.

Nice Day  Sucess!

This is an ok hike. Not as hard as it is made out to be. Not my favorite hike.

Up w/Brit and Ran Down Hard  Sucess!

Been up to Superstition Peak before, but never on this side of the range. Went up with Brit in about 1:15 and then bagged the peak above, went back to the Flatiron, and then ran down quick to the campground in 26 minutes. Super cool and definitely a classic. It's a climb kind of like Camelback, but over twice as far.

Popular local classic  Sucess!

Very beautiful area and hike. Headed up class 3 terrain for the last couple of hundred yards to the saddle, then back down the main trail after tagging the Flatiron. Camped at the Lost Dutchman State Park campground.

Proper route helps  Sucess!

I attempted to climb Flatiron 4 days before this but foolishly forgot to check SummitPost to get the route information and tried going up the next canyon around on the west side. The Siphon Draw trail was much easier, in spite of the steep rock scramble. After Flatiron I went over and went up the high point and then scrambled down the east side and discovered the trail going to Superstition Peak. I hiked in that direction for awhile and then had to turn around due to time.

Draw and Drama  Sucess!

The drama comes from the visit to the crash site, very sad and erie. Weather was perfect and we spent an hour and a half roaming around and hitting the high points. Crowds could have been worse.

Old Quads a barkin!  Sucess!

Fantastic scramble except for the crowds. Saturday, perfect temp, just after the holidays, dry. Oh well. Just a bit sore from this one (I'm 59) because I haven't done anything this strenous in over 8 months but WELL WORTH THE VIEW!

Not too bad...  Sucess!

Not so tough as the page makes it sound,I think, but a lot of fun...except for the huge crowds.

First time up. Won't be the last.  Sucess!

Great hike although I did bust up my ankle pretty good on the way down.

HOT  Sucess!

Standard Siphon Draw route. Thought it was a great idea to hike this in Aug...needless to say it was like a million degrees and I was the only one out there. Great hike!!

Desert Beauty  Sucess!

I can't say much else other than it was out of this world. The landscape was just ridiculous-- made me think about Wiley Coyote and Roadrunner. Awesome cacti; fun trail; incredible rock formations; 3000 ft elevation gain. Also, the view from the unnamed peak is way better than the flatiron. I'm glad that I spent my one day in phoenix doing this... Overall, it was an experience I will never forget.

Flatiron/ No name peak  Sucess!

I have climbed to both flatiron and no name peak 4 times as of this witting. Very rewarding hike/ climb but quite strenuous. I take my 10 year old on this each time I go.

Flatiron + peak 5024  Sucess!

Been meaning to visit my friend MF in Phoenix for years. Unfortunately, the Easter traffic from Vegas was a little thick.

MF showed me the route from the restaurant; this route avoids the day use fee at the park. He had been up Flatiron about 25 times.

I was sick, but we still made it in 1 h 25 m.

Wonderful flowers -- phacelias, lupines, hyacynths, penstemon, poppies...poppies will make them sleep...

Flatiron + bonus level  Sucess!

I've done this hike before, up to the unamed peak at least, so I knew what to expect on the front side. However I've always been tantalized by Superstition Peak lingering just out of reach so the East. I descided to start early, travel alone, and push hard to hit that peak. For the record, hiking round trip to Superstition Peak from Siphon Draw is not a hike for the faint of heart. Enjoy!

Hotiron, I mean Flatiron  Sucess!

Started hiking Siphon Draw around 6am and probably could have started earlier. Pretty damn hot by the time I finished around 11am and there were people just starting out!

Siphon Draw and Pt. 5042

The view from the Flatiron was great and the scramble to the higher peak just as good! Amazing views and a surprisingly steep hike.
