This historic Apache Trail Road winds along the northern reaches of the Superstition Mountains to Theodore Roosevelt Dam, the first large-scale federal reclamation project. Built at the turn of the century, the road was the only access to the remote dam site. Today, two more reservoirs, Canyon Lake and Apache Lake, fill the former Salt River Canyon and form the northern border of the Superstition Mountains. Though the ride is long, the scenery is great and road surface is smooth. It's about 25 miles east of Apache Junction. Tread: Maintained dirt road.
