Treasure Loop

Treasure Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Nestled up to the scenic west end of the Superstition Mountains, Lost Dutchman State Park offers a nice respite from the rush of nearby Phoenix and surrounding suburbs.

Beginning in the park are a handful of trails that shortly enter the Tonto National Forest, each trail venturing far enough into the lower slopes of the soaring Superstitions to take in spectacular views and a nice stretch of Sonoran desert. One of these trails is the 2.4-mile Treasure Loop."

A leisurely hike for all ages that takes one right up to the base of Superstition Mountain. Trail is well kept for the majority of the loop except for at the very top, which has some loose rock. I will surely re-visit this area in the future. It is a great hike to feel out the area if you are unsure about some of the more difficult and lengthy hikes in the area.

Did this one with a friend at one in the morning to the light of a full moon. It was an easy trail with awesome desert scenery and lots of animals (including several coyotes). Takes you to the base of Superstition Mountain, but there is hardly any elevation change.

Very easy trail, low impact and almost no elevation change. Good for beginners. Lots of snakes and lizards in the open.
