Discover the Apache Trail with Highlights + stop at Goldfield Ghost Town.
President Roosevelt (Teddy) said "The Apache Trail combines the grandeur of the Alps, the glory of the Rockies, the magnificence of the Grand Canyon and then adds an indefinable something that none of the others have. To me, it is the most awe-inspiring and most sublimely beautiful panorama nature has ever created. "
This tour expands on the Apache Trail Highlights Tour by proceeding beyond the usual turnaround point of Tortilla Flats. We will continue past where most tourists stop to the solitude of the desert canyons beyond where the paved portion of the trail ends continuing on to a stunning scenic overlook. Additional time approx. 1 more hour.
We'll leave the Valley and take historic AZ-88 in Apache Junction; first stop will be Goldfield Ghost Town.
Time permitting, optional stops after could include:
- Superstition Mountain Visitor's Center and
- Weaver's Needle Vista viewpoint. Depending on remaining time, we'll then head out on one of the most scenic drives in AZ! You'll see incredible canyons, mountain, & desert as we ride the trail past Saguaro Lake and Canyon Lake before arriving in Tortilla Flat, a scenic, old west town where we will stop for if desired before heading back to Phoenix.
