Apache Trail and Superstition Mountain
Historically a stagecoach trail, Apache Trail links Apache Junction with Theodore Roosevelt Lake, presenting one of the most magnificent scenic routes as it winds through the rugged desert Superstition Mountains past gorgeous reservoir lakes within Tonto National Forest. You can travel along the shorelines by wondrous red rock cliffs, experience an occasional sighting of Big Horn sheep, or catch a prized rainbow trout in the well-stocked lake.
To get there from Mesa, take U.S. 60 east, exit at Idaho Road and travel north to connect with Highway 88. This is a popular daytrip from Mesa because you will be walking the footsteps that Native Americans and intrepid prospectors took more than 100 years ago. Miles of fabulous desert vistas await you on the trail.
Some 2,000 feet up, looms Superstition Mountain, home of the Lost Dutchman Mine. This storied mine is featured at a museum of the same name that displays the history, folklore, and artifacts of the Superstition Mountains and surrounding area.
Nestled in the Superstition Mountain Wilderness is the famed stagecoach stop of Tortilla Flat where you can belly up to the bar, grab a burger or home style chili and salsa, and also try the famous prickly pear ice cream!
