The event included guided hikes to nearby places such as Arnett Creek, Claypool Tunnel, The Cross, Pinal City and the Pinal Cemetery.

The East Valley Back Country Horsemen led a guided horseback ride through the Queen Creek Canyon on the LOST.

Superiorite Ricardo Provencio shared some of his stories during one of the morning discussions and there was a presentation of the sites along the entire Arizona Trail. This years history luncheon included a presentation on the history of the Boyce Thompson Arboretum.

The event concluded with a presentation and guided ghost walk of downtown Superior. The Crossing Over Paranormal Society presented the findings from their recent investigations of downtown Superior and several buildings on Main St.
