I visited during the Fourth of July week when it was well over 110 degrees. I completed the entire Apache Trail but was driving a Jeep. I can defiantly say do not drive past tortilla flats if you do not have a Off road type...More

visited Superstitution Mtn museum which was interesting history of area. It is small but well worth the time. There is what is left of a western town used for movies. Also a really well done train display out doors showing many western scenes,

The doctor strongly discouraged me from backpacking, stating the extra weight on my shoulders could cause further problems with my L-5, lower back vertebrae. I said “Okay, I hear ya.”But months later here I was, sufficiently excited about tomorrow’s new adventure that I could barely...More

This trail delivers the stunning rugged scenery of the Superstition Wilderness, and is accessible via paved state route 88 about 10 miles northeast of Apache Junction. There’s plenty of parking (at least on weekdays) at the Canyon Lake Marina. Portable toilets are available but no...More

Don't bother with that hike. Do the Siphon Draw trail up the northwest side all the way to the Flatiron and then take a left all the way to the top. If you are in real good shape, you can be up and down in four hours. But... More
