Apache Junction is the embodiment of the true Wild West and as well as plenty to keep visitors occupied, it has a fascinating and mysterious history as well.
Exploring Lost Dutchman State Park, amid the Superstition Mountains, is one of the most fascinating things to do in Apache Junction. According to legend, there is a gold mine nestled somewhere in the heart of this region and those who were lucky enough to find it and emerge with riches had difficulty locating it again or died under mysterious circumstances. Today, the Lost Dutchman State Park is enjoyed for its hiking trails and unusual caves that show signs of being former dwellings for Native Americans. The trails here offer something for people of every ability and who knows, if you're lucky you may once again stumble upon the Lost Dutchman's gold.
