Apache Junction Superstition Mountains
The Superstitions, with trails that’ll take you back in time, are said to hold gold and is the soul of Apache Junction. A variety of life styles are offered in Apache Junction, including western rural acreage, urban single-family residential neighborhoods, adult- only retirement clusters and mixed age-group living areas.
You can take a mine tour and pan for gold along the Apache Trail. The Goldfield Ghost Town, a recreated boomtown that’s fun for the whole family offers many things to do. You can ride Arizona’s only narrow-gauge railroad, visit the Superstition Mountain Museum, catch a mock gun fight and take a ride on the Superstition Zip line.
As locals, we call these mountains southeast of Phoenix the “Supes.” The iconic mountain range is home to some of state’s most photographed trails. These include, Weavers Needle, The Peralta Canyon, and the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine. As legend goes, an immigrant revealed he had discovered gold in the Superstition Mountains, on his deathbed. Gold has been unearthed in the region, but none has been verified as his.
But it’s gold of another kind – celebrated Sonoran Desert sunrises and sunsets – that draw most visitors. This is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts thanks to the wide-open vistas and lush desert vegetation that is especially gorgeous in spring when the cacti and wildflowers are in bloom.
Whether you’re hiking, horseback riding, or off-roading, you’ll want to continue on to Tortilla Flat. Once a stage stop, today the cantina serves a mean bowl of chili.
