"This 44-mile paved and gravel road, a National Scenic Byway, traverses the rugged northern fringe of the fabled Superstition Mountains and offers access to three large reservoirs on the Salt River.
The 44-mile-long Apache Trail meanders across central Arizona’s most beautiful piece of real estate. The road dips, rolls, and twists along the northern flank of the rumpled Superstition Mountains northeast of Phoenix. This rugged land is a tangle of precipitous canyons, sharp volcanic peaks, tawny cliffs, undulating mesas, and stately saguaro forests. The drive, traversing a land of raw, pristine beauty, offers unmatched views. The Apache Trail is one of Arizona’s best scenic drives."
