Apache Trail, Dolly Steamboat, Goldfield Ghost Town tour
Your Apache Trail tour begins the moment we pick you up from your Scottsdale/Phoenix area resort. Our experienced Tour Guides will be at your side throughout the day to answer questions and share their considerable knowledge of the state of Arizona. You will be traveling on the same route as the early explorers of the Apache trail and into the rugged wilderness of the Tonto National forest.
Sonoran Desert Walk – The Superstition Mountains will serve as the backdrop for our easy and informative Sonoran Desert walk. Over thirty different plants, desert birds and mammal species are encountered along this scenic trail. These desert inhabitants played an important role in the daily lives of the Native Americans of our Sonoran Desert.
Get your cameras ready for Fish Creek Overlook! But like many Arizona scenes, this will be best kept in memory – photos often cannot do it justice. The remarkable narrow canyons lie among great expanses of sharp, eroded, rock. Several peaks tower over the 4,000 foot canyon walls stretching high above the deep canyon which flows to the Salt River, joining it just below Apache Lake.
Tortilla Flat – We capture the feeling of the Old West with a visit to historic Tortilla Flat. Originally a stage stop in 1904, it is now a remnant of an Old West town and home to six people. While at Tortilla Flat, you will learn the history of the Superstition Mountains, hear about the Lost Dutchman, and other gold legends.
