Hold on to your hat as we creep up and down Fish Creek hill for an unforgettable view of the Superstition Mountain Wilderness. Then on to colorful Tortilla Flat and the Goldfield Ghost Town where you’ll get picture perfect glimpses into Arizona’s rambunctious past. This part is featured in both our half day and full day excursions. Canyon Lake’s Dolly Steamboat is available upon request for groups of 10 or more.
Only minutes from the city, the Apache Trail is a true wilderness adventure and a perfect day in the Sonoran desert.
Sedona’s Red Rock Canyon
Join us for a day on the legendary Apache trail. This is the only tour that will take you 22 miles on a dirt road through the entire trail. Experience the full or half day tour and see Arizona’s first designated “Historic Highway”. Don’t just take our word for it, here is what Theodore Roosevelt had to say about the Apache Trail.
“THE APACHE TRAIL COMBINES THE GRANDEUR OF THE ALPS, THE GLORY OF THE ROCKIES, THE MAGNIFICENCE OF THE GRAND CANYON AND THEN ADDS AN INDEFINABLE SOMETHING THAT NONE OF THE OTHERS HAVE, TO ME, IT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PANORAMA NATURE HAS CREATED.”
This breathtaking road started as an Indian route and became the supply route for one of the first reclamation projects in the U.S. Today, this system is comprised of four desert lakes, the largest being formed by Roosevelt Dam at the end of the trail. The full day tour takes you to the ancient ruins of the Tonto National Monument where visitors can see fingerprints left by the Salado Indians who inhabited the area over 700 years ago.
