A rich vein of history runs through this region. The Apache Trail once served as a stage coach and freight wagon route from Mesa to Globe. Indians, cowboys and miners have all roamed the mysterious Superstition Mountains. Jacob Waltz's Lost Dutchman Mine is still waiting to be discovered in a hidden canyon.
Today, the Apache Trail remains a treasure chest of adventure. Discover here a most fascinating ecosystem. Experience the breathtaking canyons, desert lakes, towering saguaro cacti and desert wildflowers. Keep a sharp lookout for desert bighorn sheep, coyotes, and rattlesnakes.
