Owner description: Named after the fabled lost gold mine, Lost Dutchman State Park is located in the Sonoran Desert, 40 miles east of Phoenix. Several trails lead from the park into the Superstition Wilderness and surrounding Tonto National Forest. Take a stroll along the Native Plant Trail or hike the challenging Siphon Draw Trail to the top of the Flatiron. Depending on the year's rainfall, you might be treated to a carpet of desert wildflowers in the spring. Enjoy a weekend of camping and experience native wildlife including mule deer, coyote, javelina and jackrabbit. New for 2014! A four mile Mountain Bike Loop Trail has opened at the park -- this is a great way to enjoy the park's beauty! The park offers a variety of hiking trails, nature trails, picnic facilities, 134 campsites, a dump station, restrooms, showers, and group use areas. The visitor center sells maps and other publications. Before you hike, be prepared with enough water and proper footwear as the trails are steep and challenging.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Bathroom facilities

Desert dwellers abound. There are many trails both easy and more difficult. Did you find the lost gold yet?

Be sure to take your camera. A medium hike is the treasure lol, that takes you almost to the the top of the foothills.

The camping and hiking at Lost Dutchman State Park are really unique. The desert landscape the Desert wildlife in the dark Starry skies at night make this a very special place.

Amazing view, amazing hike... It's very worth it! Don't forget a lot of water. If you don't want to do the whole trek you can go late after and watch the sunset... it's absolutely beautiful... Make sure you bring lots of water on the way, the mountain look close but it's not that close.
ENJOY bring your energy and take some deep breaths... It was for me the best relaxing trek in Arizona... The view gave me time to think, breath and relaxe while enjoy a breeze of the desert!
DON'T FORGET WATER !!!
