We started out at Apache Junction.
We stopped at the Antique Stores there and then we were off.
A bit of history…
The Apache Trail was a Stage Coach Trail that went through the Superstition Mountains.
This trail was named after the Apache Indians.
Starting at Apache Junction and ending at Theodore Roosevelt Lake… Apache Trail goes through the Superstition Mountains and Tonto National Forest. It is known for being the most scenic trail… and I do agree!
We did not have our 4 wheel drive and we were able to do the whole trail. There are some hair pin turns and it has a washboard road most of the way… but just take it slow and You Will Be Fine!
You need lots of time to complete the trail so start out in the early morning.
When you get to Tortilla Flats… STOP and enjoy! Get yourself some Gelato. I had the Prickly Pear Gelato which was delicious! Walk around and enjoy…
My Prickly Pear Gelato at Tortilla Flat.
I did see one of these… but only one.
Indian Ruins will be seen if you stop. We ate our picnic dinner here and then climbed up to see the ruins.
Make it a must… to ride The Apache Trail… an amazing drive with beautiful views.
