    Only minutes from the city, the Apache Trail is a true wilderness adventure in the Sonoran desert. Arizona's first designated "Historic Highway" and a scenic byway, the original Apache Trail was a footpath in which the local Apache Tribe would use to travel through the Superstition Mountains. When western expansion began to take hold, this once small footpath became a stage coach trail for miners and mountain men who were in search of their fortunes. Two of the more colorful stops along the Apache Trail are Goldfield Ghost Town and Tortilla Flats. Goldfield, named after the precious metal that was found in the area, was incorporated in 1892. During the tour you will have a chance to spend time in this restored ghost town practicing gold panning techniques, marveling at the original mining gear, or even spending some time at Lu Lu's Bordello if you dare.

    During your tour along the Apache Trail, guests will be treated to a steamboat ride on Canyon Lake by the famous Dolly Steamboat. As part of the 6 mile narrated nature cruise, there may be opportunities to see Big Horn Sheep, Bald Eagles, and a host of other desert animals, as well as unforgettable views of 1300 ft volcanic cliff walls of Canyon Lake. Following the steamboat ride, the tour will continue to Tortilla Flat and just beyond that Fish Creek Hill in the Superstition Wilderness. Fish Creek Hill provides amazing vantage point to peer off into the Sonoran Desert and Superstition Wilderness.

    The Superstition Mountains are truly a breathtaking sight to behold. This rugged landscape in the Sonoran Desert has been the jewel that some men were looking for with the most famous involving the Lost Dutchman Mine.
