trip report by site editor Rick McCharles
I had a half day free to hike. Not sure where to go, I drove up to Peralta trailhead close to Mesa, AZ. Of the many options from the trailhead, this looked best to me.
- Level: Easy/ Moderate
- Length: 5 miles
- Elevation: approx 1300 ft. gain
- Type: Out and Back
It was a beautiful day climbing up and along a creek. Here’s the vista on one side.
And the other side.
At the Fremont Saddle kids were scrambling the boulders. Moms tried to avert their eyes.
If you have two vehicles, you might want to continue past Fremont Saddle.
