If itís jaw-dropping sights you want, then youíll find them on this amazing Arizona half day tour. This Arizona tour takes you in a luxury custom vehicle to the Apache Trail, the famous stage coach trail that was also once used by the local Apache Tribe. Sit back and relax in your comfortable leather seats because youíre in for a ride!
The Apache Trail runs through the beautiful Superstition Mountains. The range spans roughly 160,000 acres and is home to a number of mines, including the Lost Dutchmanís Gold Mine, home to the largest gold vein in the West. During this Apache Trail half day tour, youíll stop at Goldfield, a ghost town that was once a gold minerís dream back in the 1890s. Once the gold was gone, so were the miners. While there, you can put your gold panning stills to the test, marvel at the original mining gear, or even spend some time at Lu Luís Bordello if you dare.
During your tour along the Apache Trail, you will be treated to a steamboat ride on Canyon Lake by the famous Dolly Steamboat. As part of the 6 mile narrated nature cruise, there may be opportunities to see big horn sheep, bald eagles, and a host of other desert animals, as well as unforgettable views of 1300 foot volcanic cliff walls of Canyon Lake.
Another major stop on this Apache Trail tour is Tortilla Flats, a trail fixture. This stagecoach stop has seen its share of fires and floods, but somehow still stands. Itís one of Arizonaís smallest communities; it has a population of just six people. Grab a beer at the saloon if youíre feeling hot or pick up some souvenirs at the next-door gift shop. Youíll definitely want to remember this tiny town. Make sure you have your camera ready, too. The site offers some great views of the surrounding mountain range.
