This area is off the beaten path, but well worth the drive. There are a couple of tourist attractions, but on a whole it seemed only locals hiked these trails. These are some of the prettiest areas & so quiet and peaceful. There are various...More

visited Superstitution Mtn museum which was interesting history of area. It is small but well worth the time. There is what is left of a western town used for movies. Also a really well done train display out doors showing many western scenes,

We just did this hike today. We were told it was very difficult. I don't personally think it is. A bit rocky in places and steep at the end. It took us around about 2 hours. We were a bit nervous as we were told...More

What an incredible drive! Miles and miles of winding roads with incredible views ! Well worth the trip. We went as far as Tortilla Flats which is where the roads become in paved and rough. There are plenty of areas to pull off for photos....More

Don't bother with that hike. Do the Siphon Draw trail up the northwest side all the way to the Flatiron and then take a left all the way to the top. If you are in real good shape, you can be up and down in four hours. But... More
