Apache Trail tour, Phoenix


Apache Trail tour, Phoenix

Discover the stunning natural beauty and the rich history of Arizona’s beautiful Apache Trail. Running through the Sonoran Desert and the Superstition Mountains, the Apache Trail is Arizona’s first dedicated “Historic Highway” and was created by the Native American Apache tribe. A major destination in the mid-19th century gold rush, you will visit Goldfield Ghost Town, Tortilla Flat and even take an enchanting steamboat ride on Canyon Lake. Admire the rugged beauty of the landscape as your guide brings the past to life with fascinating stories and anecdotes from times gone by. Head out of Pheonix and get back in touch with nature in the spectacular and diverse Arizona countryside. Walk along the Apache trail, once a small tribal footpath that was expanded rapidly by the hordes of prospectors who flocked to the area in search of gold and fortunes. Arrive at Goldfield, aptly named for its once rich reserves of the precious metal, to learn the techniques involved in gold panning and to marvel at the original mining gear used centuries ago. Then head to the dazzling Canyon Lake in the heart of the wilderness for a six mile narrated nature cruise on the famous Dolly Steamboat. Keep your eyes peeled for the diverse wildlife found in this area such as bald eagles, big horn sheep and many other desert dwellers. Admire the 1300 foot volcanic cliff walls of the lake before continuing your tour to Tortilla Flat, the last surviving stage coach stop of the Apache Trail.


Full day guided tour including lunch, bottled water and Dolly Steamboat tickets.
