First Water Trailhead: Hiking Dutchman Trail into the Superstition Wilderness

Hiking is a great way to help keep those muscles healthy. Steve and Cathy hike regularly and like to share them with everyone looking for something healthy to do.

The First Water Trailhead just off of the Apache Trail and only a short drive from the Phoenix / Scottsdale, Arizona region, provides several excellent easy to moderate hiking opportunities into the Superstition Wilderness area. To get to the trailhead from Scottsdale take Route 101 south to Route 60. Proceed east on Route 60 to State Highway 88 (Idaho Rd. Exit) into Apache Junction. Drive northeast on State Highway 88. Follow 88 about a mile past Lost Dutchman State Park and look for the brown sign on the right for the First Water Trail Head (FR 78). Follow this well graded dirt road 3 miles to the trailhead. There are bathrooms at the trailhead.

The hike begins as you proceed east on the wide Dutchman Trail into the Superstition Wilderness. This Wilderness was designated in 1939, and was expanded to its present size in 1984. It now contains approximately 160,200 acres. There is a well-developed trail system, and the western end of the wilderness receives heavy use during the cooler times of the year. Trail conditions vary from fair to very poor. Several trails are unsuitable for horses.
