The legendary Apache Trail of Arizona is a 22 mile dirt road drive. Here at Explore Arizona Tours, we are the only van touring company that will take you down the entire trail. Your opportunity to tour with us is truly unique as this is an exclusive offer. Experience Arizona's first designated ''Historic Highway'' in a comfortable air conditioned van that allows excellent photos to be taken. This is an incredible trail; this is what Theodore Roosevelt had to say about it, ''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.''
The Apache trail started out as a Native American route. Later it became one of the first reclamation projects in the U.S. and now is a system of 4 lakes. At the end of the trail is the largest of the 4 lakes and that is formed by the Roosevelt Dam. The half day tour takes you to the ancient ruins of the Tonto National Monument. This fascinating place shows you fingerprints left by the Salado Indians who inhabited the area over 700 years ago. Next we'll creep down to Fish Hill Creek for a breathtaking view of the Superstition Mountain Wilderness. From here will head to the colorful Tortilla Flat and then to the ghost town of Goldfield. Here you'll find picture perfect glimpses into Arizona's rambunctious past. The half day tour of the Apache Trail is one full of fun, adventure, and incredible beauty.
