Superstition Mountain & Lost Dutchman Museum

The overwhelming presence of the Superstition Mountainsis the main attraction of this area. It is maintained to be the location for the famous Lost Dutchman Mine. Over the years, many explorers have attempted to find the mine - all unsuccessfully - with some losing their lives in the pursuit. Superstition Peak, 5,057 feet above sea level, is the highest in the range, which was named by the local Pima Indian Tribe.

The Lost Dutchman State Park

The Apache Trail, which winds north from Apache Junction, is an exceptionally scenic mountain drive to recreation areas such as Canyon, Apache and Roosevelt Lakes, all located in Salt River Canyon. U.S. 60, to the east, leads to the active mining towns of Globe, Miami and Superior.
