Weaver’s Needle

Peralta & Cave Trail Loop

On March 8, 2022 Kim and I hiked out to see Weaver’s Needle from Fremont Saddle. The Peralta Trail (102) portion is a moderately steep climb to Fremont Saddle for a great view of Weaver’s Needle. We took a short walk out to a Pinon tree for a closer view of the Needle. The Cave Trail portion was a challenge to find and included some scrambling. A fun trail all around. Details are below.
