What You Can Expect
Travel the scenic Apache Trail at the base of the legendary Superstition Mountains.
Visit Goldfield Ghost Town where tales of gold abound! Gold was first struck here in 1892.
Next, it's time for a relaxing steamboat cruise on one of Arizona's most beautiful desert lakes - Canyon Lake. Your cruise aboard the Dolly Steamboat will give you a chance to catch a glimpse of big horn sheep and bald eagles as well as learn about the Apaches from your boat captain.
After your cruise, enjoy a stop at the "bustling" town of Tortilla Flat (population 6). This small Arizona town is the last surviving stagecoach stop along the Apache Trail. A lunch stop will be made at either Canyon Lake Marina or Tortilla Flat.
A really different trip along the Apache trail then on to Tortilla Flat followed by a 90 minute steamboat cruise then to Goldfield Ghost Town and finally a visit down the mine. I've done this trip before on a previous visit, every time I learn more about the local area, and Arizona too, due to the knowledgable tour guides. Many thanks Brad.
The Apache Trail was a scary ride if you don't like heights. The road had very few guard rails but the view was well worth the trip. Canyon Lake had some spectacular views., the paddle boat was pleasant and relaxing. This was a great trip to get the feel of the land during the mining era. The tour guide was great at explaining history of the area. The tour guides on the Viator Tours I booked were excellent.
