A full day desert adventure!


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 highway, built during the construction of Roosevelt Dam, is a complete sampling of Arizona's wonders in one full day trip.
Beautiful desert, clear blue lakes in massive canyons combine for a true old west adventure that you will never forget!

Itinerary

We'll leave the Valley and take historic AZ-88 in Apache Junction; optional stops could include: Superstition Mountain Visitor's Center and Weaver's Needle Vista viewpoint. 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. We'll then continue our journey "off the beaten path" as we leave the pavement behind for the exciting drive down Fish Creek Hill, a 1500 ft descent into an amazing canyon! After that excitement we'll continue leisurely touring around Apache Lake until we reach Roosevelt Dam, where we can stop for photos before heading back on the main highway to Phoenix.
