Apache Trail Highlights + additional scenic sights.
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; 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 to an amazing overlook, where we will stop for photos before heading back to Phoenix.

Eric provided a great tour experience. He was thorough, responsive and communicative leading up to the day of the tour. He was patient, knowledgeable and understanding of our custom tour requirements considering we had kids and grandparents. The vehicle was comfortable and well equipped with amenities such as water, snacks and reading materials. We would use Eric again for a different tour next time we are in the area.
