Do it! You won’t regret!

The Superstition Mountains look more impressive the closer you get as you hike. The view from the road or parking lot do not do it Justice! The hike is not challenging until the last 25% of it. Make sure it is dry when you go. It was sprinkling out which made it very slippery on the steep rocks at the top.

Beautiful scenic drive!

My husband and I took our Jeep to Superstition Mountains. We took the Apache Trail and it took us 6 hours round trip with photo stops and a lunch break at a park near the water. There were places where we could take the Jeep off the road. The last mile or so was on an unpaved road so it was quite bumpy but we had a fantastic day! A lot of people had Jeeps especially at the last overlook.

A Scenic Drive
Mar 2021
Started out our long weekend in Mesa area by spending a day in the Superstition Mountains. Started out our day with a paddle on Saguaro Lake, took a break in the middle of the day for lunch and then set out for a "scenic drive" to Tortilla Flats and the Apache Trail (Route 88) in Tonto National Forest. The road is climbs the elevation and there is opportunity to stop off and take a photo, maybe a hike or a brief stroll. For a girl from the lakes and prairies of MN, the road has some hairpin turns on the edge steep canyon drop offs. But the road became unpaved and seemed to be single lane a few miles past Tortilla Flats (and was closed just prior to Willow Canyon). The scenery is beautiful and breath taking. Enjoy a pit stop at Tortilla flats for some refreshments and people watching.

Unique, beautiful, and easy to social distance!

What an interesting and beautiful area! You can see Superstition Mountain for miles as you approach. It stands high and ragged above the undulating desert surrounding it. There is a small fee to enter and park. Parking was spaced for social distancing. There are bathrooms that are exceptionally clean. The woman responsible for that should be commended. I thanked her in person as a clean public restroom is so appreciated. The area is dotted with picnic tables, some covered providing shade, some not. Some are right up close to where you'd park some are a few dozen yards in. There are many trails that crisscross through the terrain, some shorter some harder. Some with informative signage referencing the flora or animals in the area. There is one trail, at least, that offers benches along it for resting. My 80+ yr. old parents had no difficulty handling the shorter trails. I use Alltrails.com for trail info. Be sure to wear a hat and sunscreen, unless your at a covered picnic table there is no shade. Nearby there is a rock and mineral shop, horse stables, and old western style town with what they call a zip line. (Not recommending that!) But the town is cute.

A Fascinating Area with Some Interesting History
Nov 2020
I've been out here many times in years past and never tire of seeing the Superstition Mountains. A rough and tumble part of Arizona steeped in history, especially the stories of the Lost Dutchman treasure hidden somewhere in the mountains.

With the rough terrain and vertical slopes, the area is a hikers and mountain climbers haven. The scenery is spectacular.

Great backdrop for photos
May 2020
This state park is named after the legends of the Lost Dutchman’s gold mine. There are many tales of this supposed hidden gold mine in the Superstition Mountains that have captivated people for hundreds of years. Although there are several stories about the origin of the mine nobody has been able to confirm for certain which is true. This park is very interesting to visit with many trails to see the surrounding area and includes a lake. Some popular ones here are the Flatiron Trail and Weavers Needle. There’s even a small town called Goldfield Ghost Town which adds more to the old west vibes from the area. At about 45 minutes east Phoenix it is easily accessible and much different than other mountain peaks in the area. The four peaks can also be seen from here in the distance as well which provides an additional backdrop for photos especially when they’re covered in snow. Because it sits in the east it also creates some great shadows and golden curtains of light over the face of the mountains. It’s not uncommon to see many photoshoots out here for engagements and graduations due to the beautiful desert landscape. Sometimes it can be very crowded on the way there as the roads are one lane each way so just make sure you leave yourself enough time to arrive in time for sunrise/set. We have been fortunate enough to go on one of the rare occasions last year when it snowed out there and it was packed with people. However, since this park is so spread out it is a great place to come take in the scenery without feeling to crowded!
