Gather your family and friends to register for the Florence Parks and Recreation Department’s Hiking Club. Our next hike this season is Saturday, March 8th, and it starts at the Peralta Trailhead in the Superstition Mountains. It is a five-mile, moderately difficult hike, along the Peralta Trail to Fremont Saddle. Hikers will then enjoy a spectacular view of Weaver’s Needle, the central landmark in most versions of the Lost Dutchman’s Mine story.
The registration deadline is Friday, March 7th at 7:30 pm. A hiking information sheet is provided upon registration.
Participants meet at the Florence Fitness Center, located at 133 N. Main Street, at 8:45 am. Departure is 9:00 am sharp and participants then drive themselves to the trailhead. The hike and drive-time for this event is approximately 5 to 6 hours.
The fee is $5.00 for the event and there is a 15 person group limit. Hikers under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
