Being out in Gilbert you may want to go east on hwy 60 toward Florence.
1) You can go to the coke ovens, Box Canyon, etc. Take 60 east past Florence Junction (hwy 60 and 79) about 3 miles until you see a flag pole on the right. Turn right (south) and follow it back. This area is a military training area and sometimes there's a sign saying it's closed due to training. (We usually don't pay attention to the sign)
2) Go past Florence Junction and take the left turn right before the railroad tracks toward Queen Valley. (I mean 50 feet or less before the tracks) Keep to the right on Hewitt Station Rd and it turns into Forest road 172. 172 will loop up and over in the Superstition mountains and come out East of Superior. Nice trip. Get yourself an "Arizona Gazetteer". It has all, or most of the trails on it. Also, check Google maps to show you the main turnoffs from Hwy 60.
