Gold Canyon Homes For Sale
Superstition Mountain rise from the desert floor in Gold Canyon Ranch, its cliff faces blushing when caught by the sun. The mountain seems to stand sentry over the low-slung, earth-colored houses in Gold Canyon, keeping watch over a daily parade of joggers, golfers and cyclists. Homeowners can’t get much closer to the mountain than Gold Canyon, a small, unincorporated town developed about 30 years ago on what was a cattle ranch.

About Gold Canyon
There’s nothing like taking a bite out of an enormous turkey leg while strolling amid costumed revelers at the Arizona Renaissance Festival. Enjoy the annual festival as well as golf, hiking, and other outdoor recreation in Gold Canyon.
Gold Canyon, an unincorporated community about 45 minutes east of Phoenix, is known for its stunning views of the Superstition Mountains – legendary home of the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine – and sprawling desert golf courses.
The desert area in and around Gold Canyon boasts abundant wildlife such as Gambel’s quail, roadrunners, cactus wrens, coyotes, javalina, and jackrabbits. Gold Canyon is close enough to enjoy big-city amenities, but far enough away for stargazing and convenient outdoor recreation. Rogers Canyon Trail is a popular hike in the area. The moderate nine-mile round-trip trek leads to Salado cave dwelling ruins. You’ll need a high-clearance vehicle to reach the trailhead, but the effort is worth it.
Here’s a fun fact: The landscapes shown in the beginning of the 1986 film ¡Three Amigos! are from Gold Canyon, not Mexico. The mountain shown is part of the Superstition Mountains, viewed from Gold Canyon.
If you plan to discover the Gold Canyon in a different way, then the Goldfield Ghost Town is the answer. This abandoned city has gained popularity, with its eerily empty grounds with fully functional houses and factories. There are several Instagrammable buildings for your horror themed photoshoot: the blacksmith shop, the boarding house, the saloons, a school house, brewery, and meat market. Another feature is the Mystery Shack where you can witness various strange phenomenons on site.
