Added by: Unknown
This trail was featured in Arizona Highways magazine in 2013 and has become quite popular since then. It is located in the Superstition Mountains where it is rumored that old treasure maps and hidden gold are buried. It is quite challenging and has very diverse terrain so make sure to check it out before you go and/or take a wheelin friend. It took us a little over 4 ours to complete with stops for enjoying the views so be prepared with food and water. It is a narrow trail up the mountain, with multiple river crossings.
-Entrance to the route is located on the north side of the US-60 between Apache Junction and Superior, look for exit signs to Queen Valley Road. -The route follows Queen Valley Road about 1.5 miles where you’ll take a right on Hewitt Station Road (FR 357). -Go down this road for three miles then take a left (north) on FR 172 (the sign here reads “Superstition Trailheads: Woodbury 11, Rogers Trough 12”). -About Nine miles later you’ll take a right on FR 172A -Follow for two miles then take another right on FR 650 up on Montana Mountain -Continue on this road across and down the mountain until you reach the end of the loop 18 miles later.
