The scenery surrounding the Superstition Mountains is breath taking. We drove along the Apache Trail and visited everything we could. The folklore of the mountains is intriguing. Would definitely do again!

We enjoyed the beauty of the Superstition Mountains while journeying on the Apache Trail. We took many photos to capture this memorable scenery.

The Superstition stand out from the nearby area.A trip there is to visit a real wilderness and experience what the Dutchman went through. A chance to dream what others have of finding the mine. A great adventure for all ages.

Just past Apache Junction. Dirt hard packed road into the mountains. But it can be a wash out in heavy rain. Lots of hiking trails. Bring water.

We love to day hike and found a wonderland in the Superstition Mountains and Tonto National Forest. Thus far we have hiked 8 trails and expect to hike at least 5 more before our departure. We highly recommend The Wave Cave and Peralta Point

Don't bother with that hike. Do the Siphon Draw trail up the northwest side all the way to the Flatiron and then take a left all the way to the top. If you are in real good shape, you can be up and down in four hours. But... More
