Do you hike in the Superstitions?
The SALT Trail Builders are back at work restoring and improving trails in the Superstitions. The SALT Trail Builders are all volunteers who maintain the Silly Mountain Trail system, the Lost Goldmine Trail and others. Earlier this year, they improved the popular Hieroglyphics Trail.
We need your help in providing the SALT Trail Builders with the necessary equipment to continue their work.
