Once you get up and into the Superstition Mountains, you are confronted the vast distances and extremely rugged, rocky country. You can begin to understand how people can be lost in this seemingly small range of mountains on the edge of one the world's large cities. But you are truly in a wilderness that has resisted the changes of the world for the past hundreds of years of human settlement in the valley. There are only a few easily followed and marked trails, the rest are rugged and difficult to follow. The rocks are incredible and straying off a trail will soon lead you to sudden cliff or a blank rock wall.
