Starting at Goldfield Ghost Town, the 90-minute tour on the Apache Trail Highway will snake you along the historic road where some of the best scenery in central Arizona can be seen.
Steeply rising to the north is the Four Peaks Wilderness and to the south the Superstition Mountain Range. The steep-sided canyons, rock outcroppings and magnificent geologic formations are especially beautiful in spring and fall. Heading down the Apache Trail, you’ll come to the shores of Canyon Lake which twists for 10 miles through a magnificent gorge. It is one of four lakes formed by damming the Salt River, the course of which runs right through Phoenix. Just imagine the difficulties encountered constructing this road to Roosevelt Dam back in the 1900’s!
Stretch your legs at Tortilla Flat for about 20 minutes - just enough time to have a prickly pear gelato, peruse the gift shop, check out the restaurant walls covered with dollar bills.
Excitement awaits on Highway 88 – join us today on this breathtaking tour!
