Apache Trail

(Arizona National Forest)

We get so many questions about this place we had to include it. Apache Trail is a 200 mile PAVED scenic byway loop that starts from Apache Junction and connects Hwy 88 to I-60 back to Apache Junction. After passing Tortilla Flat (near mile marker 23) the road turns into a well-maintained dirt road that continues for 22 miles toward Roosevelt Dam. Superstition Wilderness, Four Peaks Wilderness, Three Bar Wildlife Area and portions of the Tonto National Forest surround this loop, making it a very scenic drive. There are some OHV trails in this general area, but note that Apache Trail itself IS NOT AN ATV/MOTORCYCLE TRAIL, it is a paved road. There are plenty of hiking and equestrian trails, camping, boating, rafting and sightseeing opportunities such as the Tonto National Monument which offers guided tours along the preserved cliff dwellings of the ancient Saledo civilization. RVs and vehicles hauling long trailers should avoid this route, as there are many blind spots and narrow sections.
