On The Rocks – Peralta Trail

Hey everyone, welcome to On The Rocks! I’m your trail guide, Claudia Collins. I’m taking you along on new adventures as I check outdoor activities off of my Arizona bucket list. Today we’re hiking to the Lone Tree via Peralta Trail in Gold Canyon!  

Peralta Trail is a 5.4-mile hike with 1,463 feet of elevation gain and it’s rated moderate. I had been wanting to do this hike for years but somehow never got around to it. The end of this trail is known for having magnificent views of Weavers Needle. I have been obsessed with hiking to Weavers Needle for years and this trail did not disappoint. If you have the time to get out and hike make sure to add this trail to the top of your bucket list!
